Shailene Woodley in First 'White Bird in a Blizzard' Sundance Trailer
Sadly, the Sundance selected coming-of-age drama The Spectacular Now hasn't been getting tons of acclaim on the awards circuit, but the film is worth your time, especially because of the amazing performances from Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley. The latter star will be seen next spring in the adaptation of Divergent, but before that, we'll see her at Sundance again with White Bird in a Blizzard, based on the novel of the same name by Laura Kaischke. The story follows a teenager's life as her mother (Eva Green) suddenly disappears, and there's some kind of surreal, dream element to the narrative in this teaser trailer.
White Bird in a Blizzard is written and directed by Gregg Araki (Smiley Face, Kaboom). Based on the acclaimed novel by Laura Kasischke, the film tells the story of Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley of The Spectacular Now and The Descendants), a young woman whose life is turned upside down by the sudden disappearance of her beautiful, enigmatic mother (Eva Green of Casino Royale and Dark Shadows). Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane and Angela Bassett also star in the film which will premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in January, but has no official release date.
