FEATURETTE – The Making Of ‘Birdman’

“I look like a turkey with leukemia!”

Michael Keaton’s bold, self-effacing turn in “Birdman” as a former movie star who attempts a comeback on Broadway is amazing, a tour-de-force if you want to use fancy words from foreign lands.

The movie has been nominated for 9 Oscars, and is playing at the Cape Ann Cinema & Stage through January 29.
