From his aerie high within the Houston Astrodome, with help from his offbeat friends, a boy is going to learn to fly with his homemade wings. Expect a miracle from young Brewster McCloud. Director Robert Altman (MASH, Nashville, Gosford Park) weaves an offbeat tale of young McCloud (Bud Cort--Harold and Maude) who lives in an abandoned bomb shelter inside the dome and studies the flight of his pet birds. He's helped in his quest by the seraphic Louise (Sally Kellerman), thwarted by Daphne Heap (Margaret Hamilton--The Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz) and seduced by Suzanne (Shelley Duvall). But when murder victims start to appear--covered in telltale bird droppings--this story of a quirky young man with a dream to break free takes an ominous turn.

Quite an eccentric film for Robert Altman ( and that's saying a lot ). I actually enjoyed this MORE than I thought I would- it's an odd little tone poem.

Kind of weird, sometimes funny. A reflection of the time period. Not as good as I expected that it would be.
