Ahead of its debut next month at the Sundance Film Festival, the first trailer for director Gregg Araki’s (Mysterious Skin) new film White Bird in a Blizzard has been released online.  Based on the novel by Laura Kasischke, the film tells the story of a young woman (Shailene Woodley) whose life is upended when her beautiful, enigmatic mother (Eva Green) suddenly goes missing.  Woodley wowed Sundance audiences last year with her performance in The Spectacular Now, and White Bird in a Blizzard certainly looks like a fascinating follow-up.
