The film is directed by Gregg Araki and based on the novel by Laura Kasischke of the same name.

'White Bird in a Blizzard' follows Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley) is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve (Eva Green), a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears - just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother's absence and certainly doesn't blame her doormat of a father, Brock, (Christopher Meloni) for the loss. In fact, it's almost a relief. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve's disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college, she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother's departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it...

The Sundance select hit also stars Shilo Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane, and Angela Bassett. Magnolia Pictures recently bought U.S. distribution rights to 'White Bird' this past April. The film currently holds a 71% on Rotten Tomatoes.
