Synopsis:

Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley) is a young woman embracing her newfound sexuality when her glamorous but strange mother Eve (Eva Green) vanishes. At first Kat is excited by her new freedom, distracted by the boy next door (Shiloh Fernandez) and the cop working the case (Thomas Jane). But as disturbing facts about the disappearance surface, the mystery begins to haunt her. From acclaimed director Gregg Araki (MYSTERIOUS SKIN, SMILEY FACE, KABOOM), based on the best-selling novel.

Critical reaction:
  • Araki blends film noir-like elements with an engagingly offbeat, Adrian Mole-like look at adolescence. ★★★★

    Geoffrey Macnab, THE INDEPENDENT

  • Weird but wonderful melodrama mixes the emotional heft of Todd Haynes with David Lynch’s dark sensibilities. ★★★★
