More About White Bird Movie
White Bird tells the story of a bully rather than the victim making it so exquisite and special. That’s right — the film extends the story of Julian, the character who bullied Auggie Pullman in Wonder (2017). Movies usually focus on the experiences of the victims of bullying, frequently omitting the narrative of the bullies. To properly appreciate the complexity of bullying as a whole and to better educate about what occurs on both ends of the spectrum, it is imperative to understand the bully’s past. The film will go into Julian’s life and illuminate the disregarded reasons why people could act in such a way.
Summary And More
White Bird will touch on themes of kindness, bravery, and the transformational power of compassion. The film was written by Mark Bomback and directed by Marc Forster. He gained notoriety for his moving narrative in Finding Neverland. The official White Bird summary is as follows:
“In White Bird, we follow Julian (Bryce Gheisar), who has struggled to belong ever since he was expelled from his former school for his treatment of Auggie Pullman. To transform his life, Julian’s grandmother (Helen Mirren) finally reveals to Julian her own story of courage — during her youth in Nazi-occupied France, a boy shelters her from mortal danger. They find first love in a stunning, magical world of their own creation, while the boy’s mother (Gillian Anderson) risks everything to keep her safe.”
In the film, Julian’s grandma (Mirren) gives him a story to encourage him and get him ready for the outside world as he gets older and encounters his fair share of real-life issues. In her tale of love in Nazi-occupied France, the boy saves her life and her mother (Anderson from Sex Education) goes to great lengths to ensure her safety. Essentially, she uses it to convey to Julian the value of kindness and how it never dies.
