Lena Dunham and the Cast of ‘Catherine Called Birdy’ at TIFF 2022 | Variety Studio

In Lena Dunham’s Toronto International Film Festival premiere “Catherine Called Birdy,” the director adapts one of her favorite childhood books, Karen Cushman’s 1994 middle-grade novel about a 12 year-old noble women’s rebellion against her father’s attempts to marry her off. Speaking about her love of the original book, Dunham said it stuck with her because of its protagonist’s refusal to stick to the fate forced on her by her family, and the way the story rewards her strength of spirit. http://bit.ly/VarietySubscribe http://www.facebook.com/variety http://www.instagram.com/variety http://www.twitter.com/variety
