White Bird in a Blizzard

{4/5} “Because I never saw my mother again, she remains in absence to me. An empty space. An invisible, half remembered ghost. So even now I catch myself thinking that I’m gonna run into her some day. Like I’ll be at a stop light, and look over at the car next to me and there she’ll be, scowling at me with disapproval.”

White Bird in a Blizzard, released in 2014

In 1988 Kat is a teenager when her mother disappears. Kat knows she was unhappy so she thinks she just decided to leave. But the police have a different theory. Kat regularly has strange dreams about her mother in which she’s calling out to her in a blizzard. A couple of years later when Kat is home from college she revisits the time of the disappearance and tries to find the truth. I didn’t find the ending quite as interesting as the beginning, but it was worth watching. Shailene Woodley and Eva Green star.

Directed by Gregg Araki (Mysterious Skin).
