White Bird In A Blizzard, anyone out there familiar with this movie? Directed by Gregg Araki, and based on Laura Kasischke‘s novel of the same name, the upcoming thriller stars Shailene Woodley as a troubled young woman whose life changes following the strange disappearance of her mother. Definitely sounds interesting, especially when we add that Woodley’s on-screen mom is Eva Green, right?
Co-produced, written and directed by Araki, the movie revolves around Woodley’s character, a 16-year-old Katrina who is preoccupied with sex and dating and eager to separate from parents she sees as terminally boring.
But everything will change when her mother vanishes, and Kat begins to wonder if her mother simply took off, or if there is a more horrifying reason for her disappearance.
Or, if you prefer more details:
When Kat’s mother walks out on her family, Kat is surprised but not shocked; the whole year she has been “becoming sixteen” – falling in love with the boy next door, shedding her babyfat, discovering sex – her mother has been slowly withdrawing. As Kat and her impassive father pick up the pieces of their daily lives, she finds herself curiously unaffected by her mother’s absence. But in dreams that become too real to ignore, she’s haunted by her mother’s cries for help. Finally, she must act on her instinct that something violent and evil has occurred – a realization that brings Kat to a chilling discovery.
Beside Woodley and Green, the rest of White Bird in a Blizzard cast includes Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Angela Bassett, Jacob Artist and Angela Bassett.
Still nothing about the official release date, but we’ll keep an eye on it, so make sure you stay tuned!
