The theme of the Movie The Starling
Melissa McCarthy and Chris O’Dowd were seen playing the role of Lilly and Jack Maynard. The movie follows the couple losing their baby, Katie to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Nevertheless, the movie did a great job of portraying the couple’s struggles and inner battles.
The couple goes through psychological upsets and Jack enrolls indefinitely into a psychiatric hospital. After, Lilly on the advice of Jack’s doctor goes to see Dr. Larry Fine. Dr. Larry Fine is portrayed by Kevin Kline.
