In medieval England, the daughter of a financially destitute Lord thwarts her father's plans to marry her off to a wealthy suitor. When the most vile suitor arrives, her parent's love for her is tested.

Nominated for a 2023 Independent Spirit Award for “Best Screenplay,” CATHERINE CALLED BIRDY is the latest film from writer/director Lena Dunham.

Lady Catherine (known as Birdy), like all the great teen heroines, is spirited, clever and adventurous – and ready to put off any suitor that comes her way. With her family desperate to marry her off, Birdy’s imagination, defiance, and modern independence put her on a collision course with her parents. Relationships are put to the test when the most vile suitor of all arrives to claim her hand.
