Airdate: Little Wing

Brian Cox features as a senior pigeon owner whose bird is stolen by a teen in a feelgood coming of age tale.

Feelgood coming-of-age film Little Wing, featuring Brian Cox, Brooklynn Prince and Kelly Reilly will screen on Paramount+ later this month.

The story follows Kaitlyn, a teen who is reeling from her parents’ divorce and the pending loss of her home. She and her best friend hope to solve her mother’s financial woes by stealing a valuable bird, but Kaitlyn, instead, forms a bond with the owner that leads her to a new outlook on life.

The case features Brian Cox (Succession) as Jaan, the pigeon racer; Kelly Reilly (Yellowstone) as Maddie, Kaitlyn’s mom; Brooklynn Prince (Cocaine Bear) as Kaitlyn; and Che Tafari (Me Time) as Adam, Kaitlyn’s classmate and friend.

Looks good -except for the obvious laugh track audio in a classroom scene which is supposed to sound like kids laughing.

From Awesomeness, and inspired by The New Yorker article by Susan Orlean about the world of pigeon racing, Little Wing is a Paramount+ original movie written by Academy Award nominee John Gatins (Flight) and directed and executive produced by Emmy Award nominee Dean Israelite (Power Rangers). John Gatins and Naomi Despres serve as producers. Little Wing is executive produced by Karen Rosenfelt, Donald De Line, Susan Orlean, Brian Cox, Don Dunn and Liz Brandenburg.

Thursday, 14 March on Paramount+.
