Sundance’s Great Performances
The stars and directors that had everyone at the 2014 film festival talking
Shailene Woodley, White Bird in a Blizzard
“I watched Mysterious Skin years ago and fell in love with it. I would have done anything to work with the director. I told my manager that, and it turned out he was friends with [director] Gregg Araki so we set up a meeting and when he had White Bird, he sent it over. I read it and said, ‘I will do anything to be in the this film.’ I had already wanted to work with him and then I was so lucky to get to do so on a movie as poetic and gorgeous as this one.
This was my fourth year at Sundance, and I always love going to the dance parties. I’m a big dancer, so just put me in a room with a good DJ and I’m ready to go.”
