White Bird in a Blizzard [R] Drama | Thriller: When she was 17, Kat lost her mom, Eve, who left her and disappeared without any word.

While Kat explores her teenage years with her neighbor and schoolmate Phil, Eve struggles to deal with aging and quenching her youthful wildness: she tries to be sexy when Brock is away, even luring Phil’s attention. After Eve leaves, Kat deals with her abandonment without much issue, even letting her own wild side out once in while, like when she seduces the detective on her mother’s case. Now on a break from college, Kat returns home and finds that her father is in a relationship with one of his coworkers: again, this doesn’t faze her. [ watch trailer ]

Afterwards, she realizes that she needs to take a week off from her life and lies to her boyfriend, saying that she is going to a business seminar, but instead she goes to Annika’s house and spends time there and also with Annika’s attractive, single father Craig.

Why Matthew McConaughey Took on Interstellar

The Oscar winning actor Matthew McConaughey was thinking of his son Levi when he was considering taking the role of father and former astronaut Cooper in the sci-fi movie Interstellar.

In a recent interview McConaughey explains, “He was into space and I would explain things in the solar system and how we got on the moon and all these things, and these young, wondrous eyes trying to, you know, work this out in his head,” McConaughey said. “That was the main gut reason why I had to do this film.”

The Christopher Nolan film also features Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain.
