In the movie White Bird in a Blizzard 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.
White Bird In A Blizzard is destined to become a movie box office bomb for one reason only; its distributor, Magnolia Pictures, releases all of their movies via Video On Demand before theatrical release. This disqualifies all of their movies, including this one, from playing in major movie theaters, including AMC, Regal and Harkins Theaters.
