Broken Bird

Show her the money!

Director Rachel Harrison Gordon scores with this superb short, and movie studios should slug it out to get her behind the camera on feature films.

Featuring a stellar performance from lead Indigo Hubbard-Salk, who nails every conflicted emotion, this calling card to the bigs follows a biracial Jersey girl preparing for her Bat Mitzvah.

Her largely-absent dad looms large over the day’s festivities, as does their shared love of music.

Full of beautifully-crafted moments, and building to a tender ending, Broken Bird heralds the birth of a major new voice.
