Great news! Many apologies for the lack of updates on the site recently, I have been swamped under with work and other commitments but hope to have everything back up-to-date within the next few days. You can also expect to see our beautiful new themes launched very soon. Stay tuned!
VARIETY – Magnolia Pictures has acquired the North American distribution rights to the Shailene Woodley-starrer “White Bird in a Blizzard” and plans a theatrical release for later this year.
Gregg Araki directed from his own script, based on Laura Kasischke’s novel. The drama also stars Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane and Angela Bassett.
The film was produced by Pascal Caucheteux, Sebastien K. Lemercier, Alix Madigan-Yorkin, Pavlina Hatoupis and Gregg Araki. Why Not Productions, Desperate Pictures, Orange Studio and Wild Bunch are the production companies on board.
Woodley stars as a college-bound teenager who is just discovering her sexuality when her mother (Green) disappears — an event that barely registers with Woodley’s character. But as time passes, she begins to come to grips with how deeply the disappearance has affected her life.
“White Bird” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in late January. Variety‘s Peter Debruge gave the film a mixed review, calling it “naughty, campy and wildly uneven.”
The deal was negotiated for Magnolia by Dori Begley and Peter Van Steemburg with CAA and Wild Bunch on behalf of the filmmakers.
I’ve added three new stills of Shailene in White Bird in a Blizzard, which will have its premiere screening at Sundance next week. I’m so glad we’re finally starting to see more from the film–hopefully there will be plenty more to come during the course of the festival. Enjoy!
It seems good things come to those who wait! After virtually no news or updates regarding White Bird in a Blizzard all year, in the past few weeks we have been treated to new stills and details of its upcoming premiere in January at Sundance. Now we have a teaser trailer for the film – which you can check out below. I can’t wait to see this one!
I’ve added two new stills of Shailene from White Bird in a Blizzard to the gallery. It was announced earlier this week that the film will indeed be headed to Sundance, which is very exciting news! To view the full lineup of premieres heading to the festival in January, click here.

It has a long time since we last had any updates on White Bird in a Blizzard, but earlier this week some new stills from the film were released. Hopefully this means that the film is being eyed for a debut at Sundance early next year – I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
I’ve added to the gallery the first images of Shailene as Kat Connors in the upcoming thriller White Bird in a Blizzard, directed by Gregg Araki. Hopefully we’ll be seeing and hearing a lot more about the film in coming months.
Kat Connors is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve, 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, 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…
