Dir. Lawrence Blume (92min, USA, 2012)
JUST ANNOUNCED! Judy Blume will join us for a post screening conversation via Skype.
Judy Blume has written (so far) 28 books, sold over 85 million copies, and won more than 90 writing awards, including in 2000 the Library of Congress Living Legends award. The first of Judy Blume’s books to be translated to film, Tiger Eyes stars Willa Holland (Gossip Girl, The O.C.) as a teenager grappling with the sudden loss of her father. Crippled by grief, her mom moves the family to New Mexico to stay with her sister. Shell-shocked and culture-shocked, Davey befriends a wise, sexy Native American young man who helps her through this difficult time.
