What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that although White Bird in a Blizzard stars teen fave Shailene Woodley (Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars), it's a mature independent drama with heavy themes and subject matter. Part coming-of-age tale and part Gone Girl-like mystery about what happened to Woodley's on-screen mother (Eva Green), it includes frequent conversations about and references to teen sex, and the main character is preoccupied with how often she can have it, either with her boyfriend or, later, a much older man. Woodley also appears partially nude (her breasts are in full view in one lingering first-time scene) a couple of times. The language is almost as mature as the sex ("f--k" is used many times, as are "s--t" and "a--hole"), and the violence includes references to domestic abuse and murder. Teens also smoke pot and drink.
