Hillbilly Elegy a Ron Howard Film | Amy Adams & Glenn Close | Official Trailer | Netflix

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.
Based on J.D. Vance’s #1 New York Times Bestseller and directed by Academy Award winner Ron Howard, HILLBILLY ELEGY is a powerful personal memoir that offers a window into one family’s personal journey of survival and triumph. By following three colorful generations through their unique struggles, J.D.’s family story explores the highs and lows that define his family’s experience.

    Glenn freaking Close. I mean, I was terrified by her in Fatal Attraction and then stunned by her corporate monster (yet human, as well) throughout the series, 'Damages'. She's a very talented and versatile performer.

    I grew up in Dayton, Ohio in a neighborhood of working class / working poor. Most were from Appalachia. I know alot about these people and I grew to love them. Mainstream culture knows nothing about them except nasty stereotypes. The acting looks amazing in this trailer - but the dialect ( or "accent" ) is way off.

    Both of my parents are from Southern OH, some of my ancestors were from Breathitt County KY like the characters in the novel. I can trace back some lines of my family to pre-1650s Virginia. My great-great grandfather rode in a Confederate cavalry unit. So all my people are/were hillbillies. I am a hillbilly. I'm fortunate that I had stable relationships with kinfolk and that my time down there was before meth and oxycontin took over. I obviously have a lot of reasons to see this, just from watching this trailer I'm pretty sure I 'know' these people.

    Southern accents to poor Whites no matter where they live. Is it in the water they drink? Nah, that's RACISM pure and simple. Hollywood believes that anyone that grows up in a small town just naturally has a Southern accent whether they live in Michigan or Georgia. Hollywood is the most RACIST town in America hands-down.
