“I am, thank the Lord, very cunning. Most girls are, though we’re not given due credit for it,” Bella Ramsey says in Catherine Called Birdy.

The medieval dramedy follows Birdy’s attempts to avoid an arranged marriage to a terrible suitor.

Check out the trailer below.

Here’s the official synopsis from Prime Video:

The year? 1290. In the Medieval English village of Stonebridge, Lady Catherine (known as Birdy) is the youngest child of Lord Rollo and the Lady Aislinn. Her playground is Stonebridge Manor, a house that, like the family, has seen better days. Financially destitute and utterly greedy, Rollo sees his daughter as his path out of financial ruin by marrying her off to a wealthy man for money and land. But Birdy, like all the great teen heroines, is spirited, clever, and adventurous and ready to put off any suitor that comes calling in increasingly ingenious ways. Her imagination, defiance, and deep belief in her own right to independence put her on a collision course with her parents. When the vilest suitor of all arrives, they are presented with the ultimate test of love for their daughter.

Catherine Called Birdy comes from writer/director Lena Dunham, based on the novel by Karen Cushman. In addition to Ramsey, the series also stars Fleabag’s Andrew Scott and Doctor Who’s Billie Piper, along with Joe Alwyn, Ralph Ineson, and Isis Hainsworth.

The feature will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival soon. It will then release theatrically September 23. Finally, Catherine Called Birdy will hit streaming for all Prime Video subscribers on October 7.
