New Display: Birds of a Feather

Birds of a feather flock together… especially during the holidays!

In this selection, you’ll find a range of films about families and friends who sing together, grow together, or just plain drive each other crazy. From the gifted children of The Royal Tenenbaums to the dysfunctional Hoover family in Little Miss Sunshine, from heartwarming correspondences in Mary and Max to eccentric female friendships in Ghost World, and from one big celebration in My Big Fat Greek Wedding to another in The Wedding Banquet, you’ll be sure to find a cozy film that makes you laugh, smile, cry, or all of the above. Watch these films by yourself or in the company of loved ones– maybe you’ll learn a thing or two about your own relationships.
