Freestyle Releasing and Freestyle Digital Media announced today that they have acquired domestic theatrical and VOD rights to Tiger Eyes, based on Judy Bloom's acclaimed young adult novel of the same name. Tiger Eyes marks the first major motion picture adaptation from Judy Bloom's work, whose books have sold more than 82 million copies in 41 countries.
Tiger Eyes tells the story of Davey (Willa Holland), 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 (Tatanka Means), 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.
Judy Bloom had this to say about the movie.
"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."
Judy Bloom is the iconic author of many best-selling books including Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret; Blubber; Forever; Summer Sisters; and the five book series featuring the irrepressible Fudge.
Freestyle has set June 7th for the day and date release in multiple markets. For more information on the film, visit the Facebook page: CLICK HERE
