Sally Hawkins and Rhys Darby are Love Birds

Sally Hawkins and Rhys Darby make their paths and finally cross.


After seeing some of the rushes of Flight of the Conchords Rhys Darby looks a good fit for the new role he has been given. He plays the band’s manager and almost steals a show in every episode. The New Zealand Born comedian made some appearances in films like Yes Man and the Richard Curtis The Boat that Rocked and has a lead role coming in Coming and Going.

Now there is another film he will be starring alongside my current favorite actress Sally Hawkins. She was otherworldly in Happy Go Lucky. She will not be seen in Mike Leigh’s new film called Another Year. But she still has some interesting movies lined up. She has the lead in the genre film called Made in Dagenham and also in Cary Fukunaga’s Jane Eyre. In Love Birds she will be going back to her crazy roots and plays a vet who helps a recently dumped man cares for an injured bird.

Filming is expected to start soon under the watchful eyes of Paul Murphy who was behind the New Zealand indie called Second hand Wedding. The film is really a silly love story but maybe just maybe the performances can save it from being commonplace.

John has a keen sense of what ticks in the world of film. He can also be seen in three distinct short film titled Woken Shell, The Tea Shop in the Moon and The Waiting. Cinema has been the basic diet he has been on for the last 10 years. His personality can be judged by the choices of his films.
