Based on the New Yorker article Little Wing by Susan Orlean, the affecting coming-of-age film from Dean Israelite tells the tale of Kaitlyn McKay (Brooklyn Prince) who resorts to stealing a valuable racing pigeon in order to help her newly divorced mom (Kelly Reilly) keep their home.  Che Tafari co-stars as Kaitlyn’s best friend.  Brian Cox is the breeder who owns the racing pigeon that Kaitlyn steals.

I spent some time with Tafari and Prince who is all grown up since her breakthrough role in “The Florida Project” by Sean Baker.

“Little Wing” is now available to stream on Paramount+.

From making found footage film “Project Almanac” to rebooting “Power Rangers” in 2017 and “Are You Afraid of the Dark” in 2019, Dean Israelite is finally ready to make a character-driven movie in “Little Wings.”  Take a look at my interview with the filmmaker about his Paramount Plus film.

Based on Susan Orlean’s The New Yorker article of the same name and adapted for the screen by John Gatins, “Little Wing” is an inspiring movie about the sweetness of life!  Here’s my interview with both Orlean and Gatins.
