A Medieval Screening of ‘Catherine Called Birdy’ Is Hosted by Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham likened the Amazon “Catherine Called Birdy” celebration to the bat mitzvah she never attended.

“This is incredible,” she said at the “Birdyfest” celebration of her new film, which had a mediaeval theme. “I am completely impressed by everyone who worked on this.

In jest, she continued, “I didn’t have a bat mitzvah, so this feels like it’s finally happening.”

On Friday, attendees of the event at Los Angeles’ The Grove were treated to a VIP picnic screening of the film, followed by an immersive Renaissance market.

While enjoying hand massages, hair braiding, cryo facials, and a temporary tattoo station, guests snacked on turkey legs, pretzels, popcorn, cotton candy, and root beer floats.

Besides, they had the option of creating their own candles, mixing up their own Epsom bath salts, and personalising their own jewellery.

Guest tarot card readers, palm readers, and an aura reader were the night’s biggest draws, though.

Bella Ramsey, formerly of “Game of Thrones,” Andrew Scott, formerly of “Fleabag,” and Joe Alwyn, formerly of “Conversations with Friends,” feature in the movie.

Dunham claimed that she had written the part for Alwyn, who is dating her friend Taylor Swift.

The “Girls” star revealed to The Hollywood Reporter, “He was really the first actor to sign on, so I felt extremely happy to have him in the cast.” He does an incredible job in the film.
