The Starling Film Storyline

Plot Summary & Review

The Maynards, a married couple, are grieving after their infant daughter died of SIDS. Jack (Chris O’Dowd), the spouse, is in a residential mental hospital, but Lilly (Melissa McCarthy) remains at home, coping with her own problems alone.

Lilly is attempting to maintain her composure in anticipation of Jack’s return from the facility. She works in a grocery shop and is responsible for the upkeep of her family’s property. As if Lilly’s problems weren’t terrible enough, a starling from her backyard starts harassing and attacking her, and she gets obsessed with stopping it. She also drives two hours every week to see Jack, pondering whether he truly wants to return home and what life would be like if he did.

A counselor at Jack’s hospital suggests Lilly contact someone for her own mental health before he returns home, putting Jack’s pain ahead of her own. This takes her to Larry Fine’s (Kevin Kline) office, where he is an eccentric psychiatrist-turned-veterinarian. As they assist each other in recognizing and confronting their challenges, they establish an unusual and improbable friendship.

Jack and Lilly find themselves back at their old house, facing the world together.
