Trivia

Despite Judy Blume's forty years of writing bestsellers for children and young adults, Tiger Eyes is the first theater-release motion picture to be made out of any of her books. (There have been television productions made of Forever, the "Fudge" books, and Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great.) See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Davey: I wonder what it's like to be dead? I hope it's peaceful - like you're floating. I hope you don't keep thinking about how you died. Or why. Or how it makes no sense. The thing about it is, it's all so final.

coming-of-age movie
4 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Davey Wexler (Willa Holland) is struggling after her father was killed. Her mother Gwen (Amy Jo Johnson) has withdrawn. She, her mother and little brother Jason move from Atlantic City to New Mexico to stay with Gwen's older sister Bitsy Kronick (Cynthia Stevenson) and her husband Walter. At the new school, she's befriended by partygirl Jane Albertson (Elise Eberle). While walking alone in a canyon, she is found by native American Wolf who connects with her. She tells him her name is Tiger.

This movie is based on Judy Blume's novel directed by her son Lawrence Blume. It's a teen girl struggling with some difficult issues. The difficulties are large and varied. It's a bit scattered. Willa Holland is quite effective holding the film together. Her performance adds the sensitivity needed although I'm not sure the material is used to its most effectiveness.
