Freestyle Digital Media has acquired Love Birds from Icon International for release in the US on DVD and VOD.

The romantic comedy is directed by Paul Murphy and written by Nick Ward. It was produced by Alan Harris and Matthew Metcalf for the General Film Company in New Zealand.

Rhys Darby and Sally Hawkins star in the story about a recently single man who finds an injured duck and reluctantly decides to nurse it back to health with the help of a single mother veterinarian. The film’s soundtrack features the music of Queen.

Said Freestyle Digital Media CEO Susan Jackson, who negotiated the deal: “We are delighted to have acquired this hilarious romantic comedy. Not only does it have great comedy performances and a hilarious duck, the Queen soundtrack brings the film alive.”
