Drama 2014 91 mins

Director: Gregg Araki

Overview

Celebrated indie filmmaker Gregg Araki continues to explore his favourite obsessions; sex, mortality and adolescence. An impressionistic adaptation of Laura Kasischke’s novel, the film follows Kat (Shailene Woodley), a sexually adventurous teen dealing with the fallout from the unexplained disappearance of her mother (Eva Green). Battling her own teenage crises, Kat must make sense of her broken family, and face the dark realities that exist at its core.

Styled with a dreamy sense of hyper-reality, and featuring a deliciously unhinged performance from Eva Green, White Bird in a Blizzard is every bit as formally exciting as we would expect from Araki, and every bit as rebellious in its examination of the agonies and ecstasies of young adulthood.
