Yardbird was nominated at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012. Written by Julius Avery and directed by Michael Spiccia, its title refers to the film's heroine, a young girl who lives on her father's scrapyard. It soon becomes clear that she has special telekinetic and healing powers (using them causes a nosebleed - a somewhat overused trope first seen in Scanners). When she comes across a group of teenage boys torturing a cat (a shortcut that tells us these are bad people) she feels obliged to save the animal and, despite apparently being aware of the girl's awesome powers, the boys come to the scrapyard to take their revenge. Although there are some cliches and its story is perhaps a little on the obvious side, Yardbird is certainly well made, with some impressive VFX. If you like Yardbird by Michael Spiccia be sure to rate it and share it.
