Cast: Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts
The cult hit of 2015. Michael Keaton plays film star Riggan Thompson who is desperate to resurrect his career and reputation as a serious actor by staging a play. However, the popularity of his former role as a comic book super hero Birdman proves a little more difficult to put behind him than he had hoped.
Featuring great performances from its ensemble cast, Birdman won Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director at the 2015 Academy Awards, as well as Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography for its dizzying ‘single-shot’ filming.
