There haven’t been a lot of Oscar-worthy films released this year, due to the pandemic, which has basically shut Hollywood down.
But now that we’re entering the fall/winter months, we’re slowly starting to see better films being released/promoted. For example, Netflix just dropped the first trailer for Ron Howard’s upcoming film, Hillbilly Elegy.
The addiction drama stars Glenn Close, Amy Adams and Freida Pinto. The project is based on the New York Times best-selling memoir ‘Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis’
It follows one woman’s journey with opioid addiction and its impact on the lives of her son and mother, played by Close. When a family crisis arises just as he’s earned an interview for his dream job, Yale Law student J.D. Vance (Gabriel Basso) struggles with his decision to go back to his Appalachian home in Southern Ohio.
The cast is impressive, the trailer looks great, and with Ron Howard directing, this has the potential to take home some awards.
It’s set to hit select theaters in November before a Netflix release date of November 24, 2020.
