The fantastic Shailene Woodley-fronted drama The Fault in Our Stars took the box office by storm last weekend, but the actress stars in a coming-of-age story of a very different sort later this year. The first White Bird in a Blizzard clip has been released from writer/director Gregg Araki’s (Mysterious Skin) adaptation of the Laura Kasischke novel, and it shows Woodley and co-star Shiloh Fernandez enjoying their hypnotic, sexually-charged relationship. In the 80s-set film, Woodley plays a young woman whose life is upended when her beautiful, enigmatic mother (Eva Green) suddenly goes missing. The pic drew a mixed response following its debut at Sundance earlier this year, but Woodley’s a wonderfully talented actress so I’m curious to see how she fares with this more adult-centric material.
Hit the jump to watch the White Bird in a Blizzard clip. The film also stars Christopher Meloni, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane, and Angela Basset. White Bird in a Blizzard will be released on iTunes and VOD on September 25th and in theaters on October 24th.
