Hillbilly Elegy Trailer Touts a Transformed Amy Adams in the Ron Howard Netflix Movie


“J.D. Vance (Gabriel Basso), a former Marine from southern Ohio and current Yale Law student, is on the verge of landing his dream job when a family crisis forces him to return to the home he’s tried to forget. J.D. must navigate the complex dynamics of his Appalachian family, including his volatile relationship with his mother Bev (Amy Adams), who’s struggling with addiction. Fueled by memories of his grandmother Mamaw (Glenn Close), the resilient and whip-smart woman who raised him, J.D. comes to embrace his family’s indelible imprint on his own personal journey.”

Amy Adams makes her first onscreen appearance here since 2018, in which she appeared in director Adam McKay’s biographical political drama, Vice, and fielded a starring run on HBO’s Sharp Objects. Her immediate backlog includes a starring role in director Joe Wright’s currently-unscheduled drama, The Woman in the Window, and her performance as Lois Lane in 2017’s Justice League will be revived and refurbished as a miniseries for HBO Max’s upcoming release of director Zack Snyder’s original vision of the film. However, Hillbilly Elegy might just become a seven-times-a-charm moment for the six-time Oscar nominee.

Speaking of several-times-Oscar-nominated actresses who never nabbed the statue, Glenn Close co-stars here as Mawmaw, the elderly, Terminator movie-loving mother of Adams’s Bev, seemingly bringing a latter-day Cloris Leachman-like vibe. The cast also consists of Frieda Pinto, Haley Bennett, Bo Hopkins, with Gabriel Basso playing the key role here as the adult version of author J.D. Vance, who would eventually escape the economic anemia and opioid-addled struggles of Appalachian life to become a U.S. Marine, a Yale Law student and, eventually, a successful venture capitalist.
