Michael Keaton stars in this darkly comic drama as Riggin Thomson, a famous, iconic, yet washed-up Superhero actor from the 90s. Remembered mainly for portraying ‘Birdman’ in the movies he has recently turned down the lucrative ‘Birdman 4’. We meet Riggin as he is about to open on Broadway with a play based on a Raymond Carver story that he has written, directed and stars in. Riggin tries to prove (to who?) that he can be a serious, tread -the-boards, critically adored theater actor.
