An official selection of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, White Bird in a Blizzard stars Shailene Woodley (The Fault in Our Stars), Eva Green (“Penny Dreadful”), Christopher Meloni (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), Shiloh Fernandez (Evil Dead) and Thomas Jane (“Hung”).

Adapted from a novel by Laura Kasischke, White Bird in a Blizzard follows Kat Connors (Woodley), who is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve (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 (Meloni), for the loss. 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.
