White Bird in a Blizzard Reviews
May 31, 2019
White Bird in a Blizzard makes full use of its all-star cast, driving a performance-led drama through a somewhat lacklustre adaptation.
April 4, 2019
It's an enjoyably arch turn from Green, but one that seems to occupy a different stratosphere to her co-stars who play things with a decided naturalism.

A film that could have been so much more considering its interesting resources, and stayed behind the shadow of its main star's performance. [Full review in Spanish].
February 15, 2018
If the director intended to elicit truths about the terrors of marriage, or the difficulties of a mother-daughter relationship, he has failed comprehensively.

Rising star Woodley is adding some raunchiness to her image; but her failure to make foul-mouthed, overly sex-obsessed Kat particularly likeable is symptomatic of the film's own weakness for posture over substance.

No Gregg Araki film is a waste of time, and White Bird in a Blizzard is no exception.

Events are ultimately spelled out in a way that betrays a novel one would have thought was not good enough to be betrayed.

Kudos to Woodley -- star of a major film franchise, the young-adult dystopian The Divergent Series -- for taking on more unusual projects.

Araki's latest drama is a refreshingly frank coming-of-age story, featuring another great performance from Woodley.

Woodley reminds us that she's not just the hippie queen of YA adaptations, but a bracing actress who's not averse to taking some gutty risks.

It's Woodley who steals the show with her underplayed and heartbreaking performance as a girl suddenly bereft of her overbearing mother.

A misguided personal trip that rambles confusedly between drama and mystery, without guaranteeing genuine interest. [Full Review in Spanish]

A very recomendable film based on the novel writen by Laura Kasischke. [Full review in Spanish]
December 12, 2015
This movie slowly changes genre into film noir, with two great femme fatale's. [Full review in Spanish]

Araki's style is all over the film and the ending is trademark, but the film ends up being a dissappointment. [Full review in Spanish]
March 9, 2015
Araki never digs deep enough, wasting the opportunity to expose Kat's resentments.
March 9, 2015
This should be a profound character study, but the cliched use of flashbacks and the mawkish elements to the piece detract heavily from our own enjoyment.
March 8, 2015
This dreamy/nightmarish weirdie finds Araki reining in his anarchic excesses with rewarding results, as his satirical sensuality reaps the benefits of a heavily orchestrated deadpan formality.

Anyone familiar with Shailene Woodley from such wholesome cinematic fare as young-adult weepie The Fault in Our Stars will be in for a shock when they encounter her no-holds-barred, all-flesh-bared performance in White Bird in a Blizzard.
