Watch, Watched, Watching: November Rain in Entertainment Posted December 26, 2022 On 12/18/2022 at 7:17 PM, Ran said: And as someone shared Mark Kermode's 10 best films of the year list, I saw Catherine, Called Birdy on it and found myself amazed that I had no idea it existed -- never saw a trailer. It can be found, at least in Sweden, on Amazon Prime. It's an adaptation of a YA novel of the same name by writer and director Lena Dunham (she does not perform in the film), and is a rather cheeky medieval comedy about Birdy (aka Catherine), daughter to an impoverished lord with expensive tastes who starts to be convinced that marrying her off will bring in the necessary income to keep himself in Siberian tigers and whatnot. Birdy is played by Bella Ramsey, who played Lyanna Mormont on Game of Thrones and will co-star in The Last of Us, and she is quite charmingly earnest and determined. She's not the only GoT alumni -- I counted at least four others (Paul Kaye, David Bradley, Dean-Charles Chapman, and Ralph Ineson) in named secondary roles. GoT alumni aside, what about Hot Priest/Moriarty/John Parry as her father! Andrew Scott looked to be having fun in the brief snippet I saw. Though it's my understanding that his character is somewhat rehabbed compared to the book.
