Writer/director Gregg Araki sheds his new-wave queer cinema roots for this Shailene Woodley vehicle about a 17-year-old girl whose sexual awakening coincides with the spooky disappearance of her down-in-the-doldrums mother, played by Eva Green.

Replete with lyrical VO, a hip, heady soundtrack and underage sexuality, it's pure Araki. Shailene Woodley's performance in this dark offbeat indie will find her in the good graces of critics once again. And the rest of the cast is great, too: It costars Thomas Jane, Christopher Meloni, Angela Bassett and Gabourey Sidibe.

Per the times, Magnolia brings this Sundance fave to iTunes September 25 before a limited release on October 24. Read our review.
