Three sentence movie reviews: White Bird in a Blizzard

 In Three Sentence Movie Reviews


Eh, it was a little bit too “dramatic novel” and there was a little too much scene chewing by Eva Green.  There were also two abrupt shifts in perspective–one of which explained a key plot point–that were confusing.*  Although this also has a female who is in charge of her sexuality with none of the usual consequences, so that was a plus.**

Cost:  free from library.
Where watched. At home. Film 2 of 3 of today’s scheduled Movie Palooza.

*If 98% of the movie is from the main character’s perspective, and two scenes aren’t, does that mean the main character doesn’t know those scenes have happened and thus doesn’t know that key plot reveal?
**Also, much like Jennifer Lawrence, Shailene Woodley is fun to watch.

    As I often note in my three sentence comments, I had not heard of this film. It has some decent heavy hitters on the cast list. I feel like I was a lot more plugged in to films and previews at another time in my life.

      I’m pretty plugged in, and I only knew about it because of the preview. I suspect it either went straight to DVD or spent a very limited amount of time in the theaters.

    It’s kind of funny the way the mind works. I didn’t realize that was Shailene Woodley in the poster until you mentioned it, but now that I look at it, rather than skim past it, it’s rather obviously her.

    I’ve had a soft spot for Shiloh Fernandez ever since I saw him in a little indie flick called “16 to Life” but he stars in a lot of stuff I have no interest in seeing. However, this one sounds intriguing.

      I’ve also recently watched Red Riding Hood which also starred Shiloh Fernandez. Unfortunately, I found him a bit wooden. He was good in this, though. Kind of vacant. I wouldn’t say his performance is reason enough to watch this film, though.
