“People are either fans or not. And I think that there is something so special about him listening to his own voice and not the voices around him. God, I’m his biggest fan, and I wanted to do a movie with him since I saw ‘Mysterious Skin,’ which I thought was so beautiful and eerie and creepy,” Shailene Woodley told Huffington Post earlier this year about taking on Gregg Araki‘s “White Bird In A Blizzard.” And after a buzzy Sundance Film Festival premiere in January, the movie is now headed to theatres and a new international trailer has arrived.
Co-starring Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Gabourey Sidibe and Shiloh Fernandez, and based on the book by Laura Kasischke, the movie follows a seventeen year-old girl who along with her family goes into a downward spiral of sex and other unseemly activities when her mother suddenly disappears without a trace. This one caused a stir in Park City, and our critic compared to “Twin Peaks” in his review, saying it’s like “one long, ominous dream, with no obvious sign that the audience will wake up anytime soon.”
“White Bird In A Blizzard” opens on VOD on September 25th and in limited release on October 24th. Watch below.
