A new clip from Gregg Araki‘s “White Bird in a Blizzard” has debuted, giving us an insight into the mother-daughter duo played by stars Eva Green and Shailene Woodley.
Based on the 1999 novel by Laura Kasischke, “White Bird in a Blizzard” stars Woodley as a college-bound suburban California (as opposed to Ohio in the book) girl named Kat Connor, whose mother, Eve (Eva Green), suddenly abandons their family. Initially unaffected, Kat is soon led to believe that something evil may have caused her disappearance.
Eve and Kat’s relationship isn’t the most healthy one between a mother and daughter, with the latter growing up basing her self-esteem on her mother’s approval. This scene, in particular, has Kat exploring her body in private whilst admitting that puberty has only led her mother to resent her even more.
In an interview with Crave Online, Woodley revealed that the scene was a highlight for her: “Yeah, that’s one of my favorite scenes in the film actually because that happens in real life. When you’re that age, you’re so aware of yourself physically. Every single day something changes when you’re a teenager because your hormones are raging. You wake up in the morning, your face a little bit puffier, a little bit skinnier. Your body’s a little bit of this, a little bit of that.”
“White Bird in a Blizzard,” which also stars Shiloh Fernandez, Thomas Jane and Gabourey Sidibe, opens on VOD on September 25 and in select theaters on October 24. Check out the latest clip below.
