Birds of America on DVD in stores now

The comedy, Birds of America (First Look Studios) was just released on DVD in stores on October 21, 2008. Go grab a copy if you haven't already! This is a super movie with Matthew Perry, Ben Foster, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Lauren Graham.

This movie explores the relationships between siblings and how they come together as a family despite their differences. Morrie, played by Matthew Perry, is the keeper of all things family related, including his siblings. Morrie's little brother Jay, played by Ben Foster, is beyond peculiar, homeless and humorously, but clinically, depressed. His beautiful sister Ida, played by Ginnifer Goodwin, is a promiscuous insomniac that is starved for attention. Morrie's wife Betty, played by Lauren Graham, has waited patiently for seven years for their hard work to pay off so they can start a family of their own. As things unfold, Morrie begins to realize that his family will stand by him no matter what.

Morrie was left to care for his brother and sister after his parents passed away during his childhood. When his siblings fail to take flight into adulthood, Morrie realizes that that his role as caretaker is much overdue. Both siblings take refuge at Morrie's home and it begins to take a toll on his marriage. Faced with the choice of turning his back on his family or standing by them despite their flaws, Morrie discovers the strength of the ties that bind them and what it means to be family.

This is a great movie to add to your video library!
