Featuring a stellar cast, Blackbird intertwines love, laughter, and heartbreak in this gentle adaptation of the Danish film Silent Heart (2014) by veteran director Roger Michell.

Susan Sarandon is Lily, a terminally ill matriarch who is determined to leave this world on her own terms. With the loving support of her husband Paul (Sam Neill), and uneasy acquiescence of her daughters Jennifer and Anna (Kate Winslet and Mia Wasikowska), Lily prepares to enjoy one last weekend with the one she loves. Unfortunately for the determined Lily, love is complicated, and not everyone is as sure as she that her time has come. Blackbird premiered at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.
