Watch Shailene Woodley Seduce a Much Older Man


In Gregg Araki’s new film White Bird in a Blizzard, Shailene Woodley plays Kat, a suburban 17-year-old who’s adrift after her mom (a tightly wound Eva Green) goes missing. Kat’s dad (Christopher Meloni) shuts down emotionally, Kat’s boyfriend (Shiloh Fernandez) grows physically distant, Kat’s friends (Gabourey Sidibe and Mark Indelicato) are already looking ahead to college, and as for Kat herself … well, now that she’s on her own with no parental oversight, she’s testing her own boundaries. That mission of self-discovery includes some sexual exploration that may shock audiences who only know Woodley from the PG-13 The Fault in Our Stars, as Kat sets her sights on the much older detective (Thomas Jane) investigating her mother’s case, then heads to his apartment to tentatively seduce him. You can see how that goes in this exclusive clip from the movie, out in theaters today.
