Willa Holland, Tatanka Means, Amy Jo Johnson, Russell Means, Cynthia Stevenson, and Elise Eberle star in the coming-of-age film which will be launched in theaters on June 7, 2013.
Announcing the deal, Freestyle Digital Media CEO Susan Jackson said, “Distributing Judy Blume’s first novel to feature is an honor for Freestyle. It’s a beautiful film with heartfelt performances.”
Added the author: “I’m thrilled with Tiger Eyes, the movie. It’s a story that’s always been close to my heart. Willa Holland captures the essence of Davey in an amazing performance. Thanks to Freestyle for embracing this film.”
Tiger Eyes tells the story of Davey, 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, everything that once mattered suddenly seems insignificant. But while exploring the surrounding canyons Davey meets Wolf, a mysterious young Native-American who is able to see past her pain. The connection they make brings Davey back from the edge and sets her on a journey from heartbreak and confusion to love and life after tragedy.
