Dave Purcell (William Hurt) is ready to call it quits on his marriage and his restaurant. His wife has left him for a job in Washington and the restaurant, The Auk, like the ill-fated bird for which it was named, has never really taken off. All seems lost until Dave's neighbour, Phonse Murphy (Andy Jones), proposes a mad yet ingenious scheme to save The Auk.
Rare Birds boasts a trio of enchanting performers: an entertainingly nuanced comedic performance from Academy Award Winner William Hurt; a lovely turn by the enchanting Molly Parker; and a sure to be classic showing by the hilarious Andy Jones.
Rare Birds is available now on DVD and VHS.
