Ok the trailer seems to have been taken down but I managed to watch it first and it lists TJ in the trailer (4th billing) and he appears sat on the sofa in a very bizarre trailer but I know nothing about this one?

I have not heard of this movie until just now.

 

I found the trailer here: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/white-bird-a-blizzard-trailer-665559

 

Maybe it'll still work, so enough people can see TJ on a sofa. :)

From my understanding it is about a sixteen year old girl who's mother walks out on her and she is left to fend for herself. It really doesn't tell you much more. And it states that it will be at the sundance film festival in 2014.

I believe his part in this flick is very minuscule...that is what I got from the trailer that I had seen a few weeks ago. Interesting plot.

 

Ok everyone get ready for a year of Tj's flicks on our way -- quite a few -- can't wait!!!

I really hope that Tom has a substantial role in this film. It was a great cast, great director, interesting plot, and ... Tom on a sofa! :D

So you're saying it's a mega, explosive blockbuster? ;) Seriously, it looks like just my kind of movie -- a potential festival darling.

Luckily, Tom has the tools to take what's small and make it feel big. :D

 

As long as TJ directs his western next year, I'll be a happy camper.

 

Yessss....

Oh, the comments I could make about this pic. :P

 

Let's just say that if this image was my screensaver, I wouldn't get any work done.

I hope that Tom becomes the scene stealer of the movie. I already know he's the reason I'll see it.

White Bird in a Blizzard hit Sundance and its, and Tom's, impact is being felt in the reviews coming out now. When Tom is mentioned in reviews, the critics have been very positive about him and his character. I won't put any quotes here because I don't want to spoil any plot or character points, so I'll just add the links of reviews that I've come across. Let's just say I really, really want to see this film... ;)

Terrific! It's always great to see Tom get positive feedback. :)

Had no clue what this was until I started reading reviews. So far the word hasn't been great but there's a good cast and The Jane has an interesting role so I'm there. He made his minor role as Miley Cyrus' dad in LOL memorable so I'm sure he's great in this.

ok it took me a while to get my hands on this but ive just watched it and have to say I really enjoyed it! it could be that I wasn't expecting much from it but I enjoyed the hell out of it and would suggest you guys check it out too. had a great soundtrack but overall I found it a great chiller with some really good performances in it. Don't expect to much TJ mind you but he does make his mark.

A well done flick on a whole. Not what I expected...but overall had a profound impact. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Great soundtrack...brings me back! It was awesome, I couldn't believe it consisted all of my most fav aritists of all time -- wrapped onto one soundtrack!

And TJ was sexy as ever...he did make his mark didn't he Geoff...as he always does...he did make it memorable :)

I'm sure he was glad to be part of this independent film.

Just picked this up today and finished watching. I really liked it. As mentioned before, the soundtrack is pretty damn good, and all the actors are pretty damn good too. Too many good films go under the radar, and this was one of them. Eva Green was just amazing, and Tom was great too. I was a bit surprised to see where it went with his character, but it fit. Something like that could have felt really forced, but it did't.

 

About 2/3rds of the way I thought I had if figured out. I was pretty sure about that, and then, I was wrong. Even thinking I knew how it was going to end up, I still liked how they managed to push it out of the picture for as long as they did. It just kind of sneaks up on you.
