WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD (2014)
reviewed by Jessica Elliott
- Kat, in describing her boyfriend, and yet, the movie, as well.
Below average, confusing, boring, tired approach
Dream sequences’ artistic nature
Nudity for no real reason (oogling does not count)
Poor accuracy of character’s “wildness”
WHAT THE MOVIE IS ABOUT
Kat Conner (Shailene Woodley) is 17-years-old when her mother goes missing. This event coincides with the beginning of her sexual awakening as a budding young adult and explores this chapter in her young life with boyfriend, Phil. Kat’s mother, Eve (Eva Green), is portrayed as despondent and at times, cruel, a product of the uneventful life she’s led ever since marrying her husband, Brock (Christopher Meloni). A former wild child herself, Eve demonstrates bizarre attention-seeking behavior, directly related to her losing her youthfulness and intrigue while Kat is blossoming into her own.
