Tiger Eyes review

Let me preface this slam by apologizing to both my 9-year-old self who loved the coming-of-age novel on which this wreck was based, and to Judy Blume, the high priestess of pubescent Jersey girls who authored said teen masterpiece. As at least half the women you know could tell you, Tiger Eyes tells the story of Davey (Arrow's Willa Holland, making the best of it), who moves to New Mexico with her basket case of a mother (Felicity's Amy Jo Johnson) after her father is murdered and falls for a nature boy named Wolf (Tatanka Means, lacking one iota of chemistry with his costar). Sadly, this…

Judy Blume tells behind-the-scenes stories of making 'Tiger Eyes' into a movie (Photos)

Judy Blume has been a best-selling author since the 1970s, but it wasn't until 2013 that a movie based on one of her novels was finally released. "Tiger Eyes," the movie based on Blume's 1981 book of the same title, tells a poignant coming-of-age story of high schooler Davey Wexler (played by Willa Holland), a sensitive teenager who is grieving over the sudden death of her father. Davey and her mother, Gwen Wexler (played by Amy Jo Johnson), and Davey's younger brother, Jason (played by Lucien Dale), move from New Jersey to New Mexico to start a new life. While in New Mexico, Davey meets a…

'Tiger Eyes' gets the heart of the tale right in first Judy Bloom novel turned movie

Thirty-two years after publication, Judy Blume's young adult novel Tiger Eyes has finally made it to the big screen. Remarkably, the story, adapted by Blume with her son, director Lawrence Blume, seems as fresh, painful and poignant as when she wrote it. Former Gossip Girl star Willa Holland compellingly evokes the prickly complexity of 17-year-old Davey Wexler as the story of her father's murder in his convenience store unfolds. In keeping with the uncompromisingly honest way that Judy Blume tells her tales, Holland pushes back hard against Cynthia Stevenson's assertive Aunt Bitsy, who…
