Gregg Araki was at the forefront of the Queer Cinema movement on the 1990s, and indeed all his movies since then have had an LGBT tint. However things will be less overtly gay with his latest, White Bird in a Blizzard, which is due to premiere at Sundance. Ahead of that though we’ve got our first look at the movie with a trailer.
Based on Laura Kasischke’s 1999 novel, the film a young woman who loses control of her life when her mother disappears. Shailene Woodley plays the main role, with the likes of Eva Green (as the mother), Angela Bassett, Shiloh Fernandez, Christopher Meloni and Gabourey Sidibe co-starring.
The movie will screen at Sundance, but there’s no word yet on when it will be released to general audiences.
