In 2010, Jennifer Lawrence burst onto the screen with her powerful and haunting performance in the dark indie drama Winter’s Bone. Since then, she has become one of the youngest women to win the Best Actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook, while also being the face of not one but two franchises with X-Men and The Hunger Games. For a few years, however, her performances have largely flown under the radar but change seems imminent with the arrival of her new film, Causeway. Starting a new phase in her career as both actress and producer with her production company Excellent Cadaver, Lawrence is entering the awards conversation in a big way. Telling the story of a veteran’s return home and the trauma she has incurred, Causeway looks like it could be a powerful story that will win over audiences everywhere.
Here is the official synopsis for Causeway:
- Jennifer Lawrence stars as Lynsey, a soldier struggling to adjust back home in New Orleans following a traumatic injury. When she meets local mechanic James, the pair begin to forge an unexpected bond.
For anybody who can’t wait to see this intimate drama, here’s everything we know about how, when, and where you can watch this new awards contender.
Is Causeway Coming to Movie Theaters?
Causeway previously premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 7, 2022, and will be distributed to US theaters by A24 on November 4, 2022.
Is There A Trailer For Causeway?
A full-length trailer for Causeway was released on October 6, 2022. The trailer opens with Lawrence nervous and seemingly alone on a bench. The camera cuts to James (Brian Tyree Henry), who cuts the tension with two simple words: “You good?” The trailer intercuts several images of Lawrence as Lynsey alone in her house, her car, and in the city. The people in her life seem to be at their wit’s end as she has endless medical examinations. James seems to be the only one who can comfort her from the loneliness she feels in her own hometown. Still, Lynsey’s war is not yet over as she battles her own solitude and her mind. The last image shows Lynsey jumping and emerging from under the water in her pool and gasping for air. Can she break free from her troubles in the same way?
