There’s media buzz about a new low-budget drama film being screened at the Sundance Film Festival, “The Hawk Is Dying”.
Paul Giamatti stars as a guy who continues to pursue his interest in â€œfalconry,â€ despite the fact that heâ€™s simply no good at it, and has even killed a few birds in the process. Perhaps Iâ€™m going only on the great cast and the enjoyably bizarre-sounding premise, but this is one Iâ€™ll be looking out for. Co-starring in the Julian Goldberger film are Michelle Williams, Michael Pitt, Robert Wisdom, Rusty Schwimmer and Ann Wedgeworth. (Yes, â€œLanaâ€ from Threeâ€™s Company.)
I’d like to say that “falconry is not therapy”, but that would be a lie. I know of someone whose doctor has prescribed falconry as an activity.
But I think that falconers do take note of apprentices whose birds, in general, don’t seem to live long, and the tendency is not toward a supportive, “Hey, that could happen to anyone.” If there is some group of people who get more critical of others in the same pastime, I haven’t encountered it.<= get_option(\'vc_tag\') ?>> = get_option(\'vc_text_before\') ?> 7986 = get_option(\'vc_human_count_text_many\') ?> = get_option(\'vc_preposition\') ?> 2226 = get_option(\'vc_human_viewers_text_many\') ?> = get_option(\'vc_tag\') ?>>
