Weaving together several connected story lines, BLUEBIRD explores the profound and transcendent effects of a tragedy on an isolated American town.
“When a well planned mission goes wrong and Tom Bishop(Brad Pitt) is held prisoner in a Chinese prison , CIA calls Nathan D. Muir(Robert Redford) on a day before he is to retire ,to throw some light into the situation. Muir had been bishops mentor and had trained him as a spy. So the story is told by Redford as a narrative. He narrates how they came together, carried out missions together and ultimately parted their ways. Twists and turns assured in this cleverly written movie . The part where Redford trains Pitt is simply superb. The chemistry between the actors is great.The movie is a two hour entertainment nothing more nothing less”
