Christopher Meloni Talks White Bird In A Blizzard, The Impact of Man Of Steel and Whether He’ll Return in a Future DC Film

4 hours ago | | See recent news »

Christopher Meloni needs to stay far away from Eva Green.  Earlier this year in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, he co-starred opposite Green as a square-jawed detective easily corrupted by her ample charm.  Meloni now finds himself once again under the actress’s spell in the indie feature White Bird in A Blizzard.  In the Shailene Woodley headlined film, Meloni stars as Brock – the mild-mannered husband to Eva Green’s sultry Eve.  It’s a loveless marriage, Eve never hesitating to remind Brock just how worthless and disappointing a man he truly is.  When Eve suddenly disappears one morning, Brock naturally becomes a suspect in his wife’s vanishing. But could somebody so weak-willed be capable of such a monstrous act?  Meloni, sporting a burly mustache and some wretched polo shirts, counters his naturally intimidating appearance to fully embody Brock’s emasculated demeanor.  It’s a fine turn »

White Bird in a Blizzard Movie Review

24 October 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: White Bird in a Blizzard Director: Gregg Araki Starring: Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Thomas Jane, Gabourey Sidibe, Mark Indelicato and Angela Bassett Striving to leave your mark on the world and be appreciated for who you truly are as you mature into the person you want to be can be a gratifying, if not equally terrifying, experience for many people. But director Gregg Araki perfectly relayed that coming-of-age and personal discovery process in his new film adaptation, ‘White Bird in a Blizzard.’ The crime thriller, which is is based on the 1999 novel of the same name by Laura Kasischke, powerfully chronicles a teen who’s  [ Read More ]

White Bird in a Blizzard, Starring Shailene Woodley, Is an Evocative, Occasionally Maddening Film

24 October 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“I was 17 when my mother disappeared,” Kat Connor (Shailene Woodley) tells us in the opening narration of White Bird in a Blizzard. “Just as I was becoming nothing but my body — flesh and blood and raging hormones — she stepped out of hers and left it behind.” It’s a poetic yet somewhat simplistic comparison, and it captures the conflicting impulses in Gregg Araki’s evocative, gorgeous, occasionally maddening film.White Bird is a coming-of-age tale that hops between the disappearance of Kat’s mother Eve (played by the great Eva Green, displaying a nutty blend of fierce allure and tense chill) and Kat’s own sexual awakening. The timeline hopscotches back and forth over a three-year period. We see the dysfunction at home, as the glamorous Eve seems so out of place in her static, sexless suburban marriage to seemingly straitlaced office drone Brock (Christopher Meloni); we see Kat start »

Watch Shailene Woodley Seduce a Much Older Man

24 October 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In Gregg Araki’s new film White Bird in a Blizzard, Shailene Woodley plays Kat, a suburban 17-year-old who’s adrift after her mom (a tightly wound Eva Green) goes missing. Kat’s dad (Christopher Meloni) shuts down emotionally, Kat’s boyfriend (Shiloh Fernandez) grows physically distant, Kat’s friends (Gabourey Sidibe and Mark Indelicato) are already looking ahead to college, and as for Kat herself … well, now that she’s on her own with no parental oversight, she’s testing her own boundaries. That mission of self-discovery includes some sexual exploration that may shock audiences who only know Woodley from the PG-13 The Fault in Our Stars, as Kat sets her sights on the much older detective (Thomas Jane) investigating her mother’s case, then heads to his apartment to tentatively seduce him. You can see how that goes in this exclusive clip from the movie, out in theaters today. »

Talking with Shailene Woodley and the cast of 'White Bird in a Blizzard'

24 October 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A few days ago we had the chance to sit down with Shailene Woodley and the cast of White Bird in a Blizzard and talk about the project.

Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley) is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve (Eva Green) 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 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.

White Bird in a Blizzard is in theaters October 24th »

White Bird in a Blizzard | Review

Skin Deep: Araki Weathers a 4th Decade in Filmmaking

Gregg Araki’s latest ode to youthful alienation, White Bird in a Blizzard, is his most restrained and grounded work to date. It’s a quiet and astute film that derives its mystery from the err of human assumption and like most, or arguably all, of Araki’s work, this posits a naïve protagonist trying to come to terms with an unthinkably harsh world.

Unraveling slowly as 17-year-old Kat Connor (Shailene Woodley) dissects and rationalizes the world and the people around her following the disappearance of her mother, Eve (Eva Green). Kat is at a precipice, literally escaping the baby fat that marginalized and repressed her in early adolescence to emerge into an adult world unprepared, grappling with a sexuality she’s not entirely comfortable with or certain of. She’s also indirectly trying to relate this to her relationship »

White Bird in a Blizzard

Written & Directed by Gregg Araki

USA, 2014


Just in case the title wasn’t enough of a hint, White Bird in a Blizzard provides enough ponderous dialogue and artsy flourishes to reveal itself as the pretentious mess that it is.  Unsure whether it’s an indie mind-screw or a conventional potboiler, Blizzard splits the difference, interspersing clumsy dream sequences with a laughably-predictable mystery plot.  This film actually seems determined to squash any chance for dramatic tension.  On that count, at least, it succeeds wildly.

Shailene Woodley continues her reign of terror with a third lackluster offering in 2014.  In contrast to Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars, she gets to play a bad girl in White Bird in a Blizzard, though the results are similarly mediocre.  Things start with a 17 year-old Kat Connor (Woodley) recalling the day her unstable mother, Eve (Eva Green), disappeared without a trace. »

Exclusive Video Interview With The Director And Cast Of White Bird In A Blizzard

23 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

White Bird in a Blizzard is the latest film from Gregg Araki, the same director who gave us Mysterious Skin, The Doom Generation and Smiley Face. It’s another excellent effort from the talented filmmaker and stars Shailene Woodley in what could be her best role to date.

The young actress steps into the part of Kat Connor, a 17-year-old girl who is just discovering her sexuality for the first time when her mother Eve (Eva Green) disappears without a trace. At first, she shows little concern over the disappearance, as the family household has long since become a very repressed one, and her father Brock (Christopher Meloni) looks to be at a complete loss in dealing with this frightening situation. But, as time goes on, Kat comes to realize how deeply affected she was by her mother suddenly vanishing and becomes obsessed with finding out the truth behind the disappearance. »

Edward Snowden Documentary ‘Citizenfour’, Sweden’s ‘Force Majeure': Specialty Box Office Preview

23 October 2014 3:33 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Last year, RADiUS scored at the box office and in Awards Season with its documentary 20 Feet From Stardom (nearly $4.95 million and Best Documentary Feature Oscar win). This year, it may have another non-fiction awards behemoth, hitting theaters this weekend.

Citizenfour, directed by journalist and filmmaker Laura Poitras, tells the story of Nsa leaker Edward Snowden as he disclosed massive domestic U.S. government spying. The film unfolds in real time as Poitras and Guardian colleague Glenn Greenwald, working on a long-term project about government surveillance, were contacted online by a mysterious source calling himself “Citizenfour.” The film, completed in secret while Poitras was in self-imposed virtual exile, alleges even more Nsa overreaching at home and abroad than just what came out of the massive pile of U.S. documents Snowden leaked.

Another potential awards contender also arrives in U.S. theaters this weekend: Sweden’s entry for Foreign Language Oscar, »

White Bird In A Blizzard Review

23 October 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Shailene Woodley has already conquered the Ya crowd with the double-hitter of the Divergent franchise and The Fault In Our Stars, so it’s somewhat surprising (but also thrilling) to see her expand into much darker, riskier territory with White Bird in a Blizzard.

In the ’80s-set indie drama, Mysterious Skin director Gregg Araki’s first serious offering since that 2004 stunner, the actress stars as Kat Connor, a teen whose sexual awakening arrives just as her aloof, unhinged mother Eve (Eva Green) vanishes into thin air. Fearlessly baring all, both physically in the uncommonly raw and real sex scenes, and dramatically throughout the often emotional narrative, Woodley is absolutely riveting here. It’s far and away her best work since The Descendants.

Of course, those hailing White Bird in a Blizzard as a return to great drama for the young actress would be working on a faulty assumption – the film »

Price: DVD $29.98, Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.99

The action-packed, graphic novel-styled thriller Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is the decade-later sequel to 2005’s Sin City, both of which are directed Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez (The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl).

We don't know your opinion, but we definitely think Eva Green is A Dame to Kill For.

The film is filled with  scandal, murder, betrayal and mystery revolving around the lives of those swept up in a crime-filled underworld. Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, Sin City’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants.

The film stars original Sin City performers Mickey Rourke (Immortal), Jessica Alba (Spy Kids 4), Bruce Willis (Looper), Powers Boothe (TV’s Hatfields and McCoys) and Rosario Dawson »

8 Things You Should Know About Shailene Woodley's 'White Bird in a Blizzard'

22 October 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

At the end of "White Bird in a Blizzard," I felt sad and dirty and lost. Call it the Gregg Araki effect. The writer/director's beautifully told films make you feel warm and fuzzy, with bubblegum candy colors and likable young characters, before revealing a latent darkness that leaves you unsafe and unsettled. And these warring sensibilities have never felt more at odds (or at home) with each other than in the campy, creeping dread of "White Bird." Foremost the director of "The Living End," "The Doom Generation" and "Mysterious Skin" (this is his first film since 2010 pratfall "Kaboom"), Araki sheds his new queer cinema roots for this Shailene Woodley vehicle about a 17-year-old girl named Kat whose sexual awakening is sparked by the spooky disappearance of her down-in-the-doldrums alcoholic mother, played with wicked malaise and malice by an out-of-place (but never out-of-step) Eva Green. Then there's Kat's stiff, »

Interview: Gregg Araki – White Bird in a Blizzard

22 October 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

We sat down with director Gregg Araki at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival after the premiere of his new film, White Bird in a Blizzard (Magnolia Pictures – 10.24). A key figure in the New Queer Cinema movement of the early 1990s, Araki discusses how it feels to now be a filmmaker whose works are discussed and used as texts in film studies courses. Despite a successful career, funding for material deemed difficult or unprofitable remains challenging even for a filmmaker of Araki’s status, who discusses issues with maintaining cast members in the face of funding and distributor hang-ups. In reference to his latest, we discuss Araki’s attraction to the material (based on a novel by Laura Kasichke, who also penned The Life Before Her Eyes), why he decided to slightly tweak the locale, and the fascinating enigma of Eva Green and her screen presence that recalls vintage era Hollywood.

Shailene Woodley talks new film nudity: 'It was very truthful'

22 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Shailene Woodley has revealed that she had no problem filming nude scenes for her new film White Bird in a Blizzard.

The 22-year-old actress said that she felt the scenes in Gregg Araki's film were "very truthful".

The film centres around the sexual awakening of 17-year-old Kat Connors (Woodley). At the same time, her beautiful but troubled mother (Eva Green) mysteriously vanishes.

"I felt like it was very truthful," she told journalists. "I feel like it lent itself to this movie. It wasn't exploitative.

"There's nothing that bothers me about seeing people have intimate scenes in films. The woman has clothes on, has full makeup, and the man has boxers - that's just not how it works."

She added that she considers intimacy to be "a natural part of being a human being".

"Especially when you're young, you're exploring that part of yourself for the first time," the actress continued. »

Shailene Woodley and Eva Green are Depressed in White Bird in a Blizzard

21 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

After a pair of characteristically way-out works (Smiley Face, Kaboom), New Queer Cinema provocateur Gregg Araki returns to the somber tenor of Mysterious Skin with White Bird in a Blizzard. Like Skin, which starred Joseph Gordon-Levitt, White Bird finds Araki adapting a novel with the help of a talented young performer. Set in a California suburb as the 1980s became the '90s, White Bird follows 17-year-old Kat Connor (Shailene Woodley, in Depeche Mode T-shirts and Converse kicks) as she deals with the sudden disappearance of her belligerent mother (Eva Green). Recruiting the vamp-like Green to play Woodley's long-depressed mom (the actresses are only 12 years apart in age) isn't Araki's only idiosyncratic casting: Gabourey Sidi »

Shailene Woodley: 'It's American to not say how you're feeling.'

21 October 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Shailene Woodley has proven one talent time and again on the silver screen: She's an expert at portraying characters who are coping with unthinkable, devastating circumstances.  "I think it's amazing, our ability to put on a mask when internally we may be feeling something else," Woodley told us. "I also think it's very American to not actually say how you're feeling, versus in other places in the other world." Woodley, who wowed us in "The Descendants," "The Fault In Our Stars," and "Divergent," is yet another complicated protagonist in Gregg Araki's new haunting drama "White Bird in a Blizzard." As a confused teen whose mother leaves the family, Woodley has to convey strength, skepticism, and a lot of vulnerability. "I think it's more interesting to be a messy human being than to be a perfect human being," she said to us. "Because none of us is perfect. We're all so messy. »

Review: Gregg Araki's Dreamlike, Unique 'White Bird In A Blizzard' With Shailene Woodley And Eva Green

20 October 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

By now, devoted cinephiles likely know what to expect going into a Gregg Araki movie: sex-crazed teens, an overabundance of nudity (sometimes pretty, sometimes not), a dream-like story wrapped snugly in a nightmare and a killer soundtrack. However, it would be lazy to call his work trashy — Araki is a brilliant director who finds a great deal of meaning in stories of teenage angst and sexual desire, and is perhaps the finest example of coming-of-rage cinema  (please watch "Mysterious Skin" now). While his latest film, "White Bird in a Blizzard," is his most mature, it never deviates far from his comfort zone. Set in the late ‘80s, "White Bird in a Blizzard" revolves around Kat Connor (Shailene Woodley) and her dysfunctional family, who are living crappily ever after. Her dad Brock (Christopher Meloni) is a pushover, and her mom Eve (Eva Green) is an alcoholic who hates her family and »

Review: Shailene Woodley Stars in Gregg Araki's 'White Bird in a Blizzard'

20 October 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Based on Laura Kasischke’s novel of the same title, “White Bird” centers on teen Kat (Shailene Woodley), living a life of angst and parental disappointment in late 1980s suburbia. When her unpredictable mother (Eva Green, giving off a major Bette Davis vibe) seemingly vanishes into thin air one day, and her doormat father (Christopher Meloni) is sent into a tailspin of despondency, Kat holds it together as best she can. She begins an affair with the middle-aged, macho detective assigned to her mother’s case, while halfheartedly attempting to stay in a relationship with her dopey boyfriend (Shiloh Fernandez), who seems to have lost sexual interest in her anyway. Because of the film’s enigmatic plot premise, Araki gets to go creepy (working with Dp Sandra Valde-Hansen), with scenes that submerge into Kat’s dream life, where she wanders in a white-out blizzard while catching glimpses of her mother, »
