Synopsis: To escape an irrational world and the horrors of the Vietnam War, Birdy (Matthew Modine from FULL METAL JACKET) sits in an almost catatonic state in an Army hospital, where he has come to believe he is one of the feathered creatures of his boyhood dreams. In an effort to break Birdy's silence, his psychiatrist brings in Al Columbato (FACE/OFF and CITY OF ANGELS star Nicolas Cage), Birdy's loyal friend. Al desperately tries to reach the disturbed Birdy and bring him back to reality - but the key may lie in their youth, where the eccentric Birdy first donned wings and Al helped him to fly. With stunning performances, an original story and the haunting music of Peter Gabriel, BIRDY soars as a powerful movie experience that will haunt your memory forever.

A soaring experience unlike anything you've ever seen before

Director: Alan Parker
Main cast: Matthew Modine, Nicolas Cage, John Harkins

Philly boys Al and Birdy became friends in high school despite the extreme difference in their personalities, Al being the popular and athletic extrovert, Birdy the antisocial "weird" introvert. Al gave Birdy his nickname because of his fascination - obsession really - with birds, especially with flight. Al and Birdy have just completed their service of duty in the Vietnam War and have returned to the States. Al sustained some serious physical injuries, which required major reconstructive surgery to his face. Birdy, however, returned from Vietnam seemingly emotionally scarred. He was missing in action for one month. He has not spoken since he was found. Despite his own medical issues, Al travels to the institution where Birdy is being kept to see if he can assist in getting Birdy out of his near comatose state. Having always had issues with authority, Al is less than forthright with the doctors about Birdy's mental state prior to the war. As Al tries whatever he can to help Birdy .
