Having already swooped up 128 awards and counting, 'Birdman' is set to be the front runner in the upcoming Oscars race with its nine nominations. But what makes this film so unique?
Centred on a washed up actor Riggan (Michael) who was popular years ago as a fictional hero 'Birdman', the film chronicles the three days before his new Broadway show opens. Trying to revive his career whilst juggling family at the same time, Riggan hears voices which at times drives him out of control.
When his lead actor who suffered an injury is replaced by Mike (Edward Norton), the attention is shifted onto him, who also has an interest in his daughter Sam (Emma Stone) although is already with fellow actress Lesley (Naomi Watts). With everything on the line, will Riggan's new play be a hit or will he lose absolutely everything?
