Tiger Eyes marks the first major motion picture adaptation from the work of iconic author Judy Blume, whose books have sold more than 82 million copies in 41 countries. Davey is 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, the displaced Davey no longer knows who to be or how to fit in. Everything that once mattered suddenly seems insignificant. But when she meets Wolf, a mysterious young Native-American, while exploring the surrounding canyons, she feels he is able to see past her pain and into her true self. 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This attenuated coming-of-age tale oozes heart and perhaps too much respect for its source material.
Fresh: [Tiger Eyes has] an uncommon intimacy, the kind you find in a Judy Blume novel. Her grit and grace are all over this heartfelt adventure of a movie. She gives it a spirit that soars.
Fresh: In the end, it represents a solid blueprint for a later, better Blume adaptation, but that's hardly anything to scoff at.
Fresh: A lean, economically told indie that should please fans of the 1981 source novel.
I saw Tiger Eyes at a Film Festival recently and loved it! I hadn't read the book before, and actually ended up buying it and reading it the following weekend because I enjoyed the story so much. Yes, there are differences between book and movie, but you can tell each addition and each omission was done for a reason. Maybe it was because I saw the movie first, but I didn't feel that it left out anything of great importance from the book. Watch this film, you won't be disappointed!
I had the opportunity to see Tiger Eyes and I truly loved it. I think Willa Holland was so wonderful and moving in her performance and I think Amy Jo Johnson's portrayal of a grieving mother who is helpless to care for her kids was so real. Def a must see.
I watched it last week in LA! I was deeply moved by the story and the great acting in it! It is a good movie for both teenage girls and their parents! By the way, the music in the movie is really good!
