No, really. I need to understand. I know at this point we're just supposed to think that anything Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence do together is the cat's pajamas, but this SERENA trailer, though? I just...what is even going on in this movie?? I see that Lawrence is playing another vixen-type character paired with a much older man (Cooper, for the third time) back in another era, and..she may or may not have killed someone...to save their marriage? All I know is by the end of the two-minute clip the couple looks like they've Romeo and Juliet'ed each other. I mean....?
Guess you just had to be there. Maybe the synopsis will help?
Not...really. Except now we know that this Serena character was a feminist before her time, and can apparently be just as conniving as any man. Win?
Gawd, I hope the movie is better than how it looks. Susanne Bier (Things We Lost in the Fire) directed the film (which could be its saving grace) from Christopher Kyle's (Alexander) screenplay adapted from the original novel by Ron Rash. Rhys Ifans also stars in the film.
Magnolia Pictures will release SERENA on iTunes / VOD February 26, 2015 and in theaters March 27, 2015.
