Plot Summary:

"The Hawk is Dying" stars Academy Award® nominee Paul Giamatti ("Sideways") as a Gainesville Florida auto upholsterer who attempts to transcend his mundane life by taming a wild, red-tailed hawk. He chases his passion while caring for his autistic nephew, played by Michael Pitt ("Last Days") and becoming caught up in an abstract and uneasy relationship with a young psychology student played by Academy Award® nominee Michelle Williams ("Brokeback Mountain"). "The Hawk is Dying" is Julian Goldberger's second feature film following "Trans," his critically successful feature debut. "Hawk" was selected in competition in both the Sundance Film Festival and Director's Fortnight in Cannes 2006.
