Blackbird

Recommended

106 min minutes

In a fit of rage, a teenaged outcast makes a careless threat online. The next thing he knows, the police have circled his house and then he’s stuck in juvie with a bunch of rampaging delinquents for planning a school shooting. Blackbird is a relatively slow-paced Canadian drama that defies your expectations on multiple levels—is it an anti-bullying statement? An indictment of the West’s apersonal, industrial-grade education system? A portrait of a deranged mind? Blackbird is none of these things, and that makes it so much more meaningful. (PAUL CONSTANT)
