For my writing career, I watch a plethora of films of all different types and I honestly can’t say I’ve ever watched something as awkwardly realistic as BIRDS WITHOUT FEATHERS. Not only that but never have I seen a title fit so perfectly with a storyline.
For as far as we have come as a society, discriminations of all kinds still greatly exist everywhere.
