The year? 1290. In the Medieval English village of Stonebridge, Lady Catherine (known as Birdy) is the youngest child of Lord Rollo and the Lady Aislinn. Her playground is Stonebridge Manor, a house that, like the family, has seen better days. Financially destitute and utterly greedy, Rollo sees his daughter as his path out of financial ruin by marrying her off to a wealthy man for money and land. But Birdy, like all the great teen heroines, is spirited, clever, and adventurous and ready to put off any suitor that comes calling in increasingly ingenious ways. Her imagination, defiance, and deep belief in her own right to independence put her on a collision course with her parents. When the vilest suitor of all arrives, they are presented with the ultimate test of love for their daughter.

The cast for this one also includes Billie Piper, Andrew Scott, Joe Alwyn, Ralph Ineson, and Dean-Charles Chapman.

After Catherine Called Birdy makes it’s world premiere, it will arrive in UK, Irish and U.S Cinemas from 23rd September. Then heading to Prime Video on 7th October.
