The Yellow Bird (2001) 1/2 – Faye Dunaway directorial debut


“Hold on to life with both hands, until your fingers are broken.” Preacher’s daughter Alma Tutwiler breaks away from the confines of her small town conservative upbringing and lives life exactly as she pleases. Tennessee Williams read his short story into a tape recorder years before he died and played it for Dunaway, so he narrates her short film from beyond the grave. In her directorial debut, Faye shows she is as talented behind the camera as she is in front of it. With Cynthia Watros, James Coburn, Brenda Blythen, Michael Pitt, and Dunaway herself in a small cameo.
