First look at Amy Adams in “Hillbilly Elegy”

Amy Adams and an unrecognizable Glenn Close act up a storm as a dysfunctional Appalachian family in the first full trailer for Ron Howard’s awards-contender “Hillbilly Elegy.

The drama, based on J.D. Vance’s best-selling memoir, will land in select theaters and on Netflix on November 24 and is already generating awards talk.

The film follows J.D. Vance (Gabriel Basso), a former Marine from southern Ohio and current Yale Law student, who 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.

The cast also includes Haley Bennett, Freida Pinto, Bo Hopkins and Owen Asztalos.

Amy Adams to Star in Film Adaptation of Rachel Yoder’s ‘Nightbitch’ for Annapurna

Following a competitive auction, Annapurna Pictures has landed the rights to Rachel Yoder’s upcoming debut novel “Nightbitch” and will adapt the book as a feature film starring Amy Adams, the company announced on Thursday.

Yoder is set to write the script and will exec produce the project alongside Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle, and Sammy Scher for Annapurna with Adams and Stacy O’Neil producing through Bond Group Entertainment.

The book will be published by Doubleday in Summer 2021.

Amy Adams joins Instagram to raise funds for kids affected by school closure amid COVID-19 threat


If Instagram is a great tool for celebrities to show you what they’re like outside of their film personas, it’s a relief to know that Amy Adams’s new Instagram account has so far confirmed that she is very much like a nice Amy Adams character. Adams, one of our foremost purveyors of supernaturally nice characters (when she isn’t having an onscreen existential crisis), has joined Instagram to be very nice in a time of crisis. In her first post, Adams announced that she has partnered with Jennifer Garner (of her own utopically earnest Instagram) to read children’s stories for those stuck inside during the coronavirus pandemic and also to raise money for children in need. In her first post, she reads The Dinosaur Princess, a story by her daughter, Aviana, illustrated by her artist husband, Darren Le Gallo. Adams reads the story for seven minutes with a soothing voice, exuding the energy of the most calming elementary-school teacher you ever had. Hey, maybe that’s the role that will finally win her that Oscar.
