The first official trailer has been released for the film adaptation of Judy Blume’s novel, Tiger Eyes. Blume is a best-selling and critically-acclaimed author, but none of her books have been made into films until now. This is the first of her novels to be made into a major motion picture.
For those of you unfamiliar with the story of Tiger Eyes, here is an official synopsis (via Apple Movie Trailers):
Davey is a 17 year-old girl abruptly relocated by her grieving mother to the strange “atom bomb” town of Los Alamos, New Mexico. With the sudden and violent death of her father, the displaced Davey no longer knows who to be or how to fit in. Everything that once mattered suddenly seems insignificant. But when she meets Wolf, a mysterious young Native American, while exploring the surrounding canyons, she feels he is able to see past her pain and into her true self. The connection they make brings Davey back from the edge and sets her on a journey from heartbreak and confusion to life and love after tragedy.
The film was directed by Judy Blume’s son, Lawrence Blume, and they worked on the screenplay together. Although it will not be in theaters until June 7, the film has premiered at number of film festivals over the past year. Tiger Eyes stars Willa Holland, Amy Jo Johnson, Cynthia Stevenson, Tatanka Means, Elise Eberle, and Russell Means. Watch the first official trailer here.
