Crimson Wing

Say the words Pink Flamingos and people usually think of two things: giant plastic lawn ornaments or the John Waters movie. This delightful nature film will change all that. It details the life cycle of a flock of Pink Flamingos living at Lake Natron in Northern Tanzania, from the mating dance to the birth of a new generation to the time when that generation learns to fly on its own. The photography is amazing, particularly on Blu-ray, but it’s the emotional impact of the story that makes the film work. Get out your handkerchiefs, because you will come to care very deeply for these amazing birds.
