A woman adjusting to life after a loss contends with a feisty bird that’s taken over her garden — and a husband who’s struggling to find a way forward.


  1. Watched this at like 2am today, and I cried so hard. I don’t have kids, so I will never understand what many parents who’ve lost their babies, go through.

  2. i just finished watching this. such a lovely movie, the emotional and make me feels sad, cry, and laugh at the same time. it just i love kind of movies like this. may anyone have recommendations?

    btw, if you haven't watch "The Last Bus" yet, i'll go with that, and let me know what is on ur mind about that

  3. I watched this with my partner. He found me after my long battle with depression. I was with my ex who left me because of the disease. I have people who have given up on me because it was so difficult and mentally exhausting. I am so thankful for my partner who reminds me of Melissa who is so headstrong, but also so vulnerable at the same time. I am grateful for people like him in my life that chooses to stay not only when it's convenient for them.

  4. Initially, watching 1st part of trailer.. I thought; no.. Hard no.. it's going to be depressing to watch.. then, something made me watch the whole thing. When she made friends with the bird, I was crying.. THEN, I read peoples comments.. now I'm crying more. Hugs to everyone, esp. to emotional men. It's okay to not be so tough. <3

  5. I had a stillborn son many years ago, the loss is still there although time heals the worst of it. Melissa is a great actress and I love Chris too. Watching the tailor I felt sad that at the time I never saw that I was not the only one grieving our babys death, my husband did in silence, many people just dont realise that Men suffer as much as woman when their child dies

  6. This movie is incredible! I lost my husband, the love of my life, 45 years ago, this movie is about grief and how we deal with it, how to find our way after someone you love passes on, it's about their baby passing but the steps for grieving are the same, so spot on, it took me years to get past my husbands death, I still miss him, you never get over it but you learn to live with out them, Melissa McCarthy is amazing, it will make you laugh and cry, separately and both at the same time. A must watch!

  7. I watched this today and I'm not a fan of Melissa McCarthy's comedic stuff especially, but she was brilliant in this – Chris O'Dowd also amazing. I cried on and off all the way through it. Very emotional. Good stuff.

  8. Soutrack credits say that a couple of the songs were by Brandi Carlile ("That wasn't me" and "The last time"). As I felt very moved especially by "The last time" I wanted to download the song so I could listen to it (again and again), BUT it seems that it isn't available literally anywhere… 🙁 Is there any reason why it is unobtainable?

  9. The critics that ripped this to shreds really need to take a look at themselves. How many films right now are showing such a sensitive and raw journey that millions face. I thought the film was amazing and the acting was superb. Some things you gotta take for what it is and not look so deeply into shit. Its a great film that allows some positivity + light heartedness into an incredibly dark and raw topic.

  10. glad i watched the trailer, i was thinking it was gonna be a Alfred Hitchcock/stephen king type movie about a psychotic bird going after the woman in the movie.
