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, directed by Academy Award winner Ron Howard and produced by Academy Award winner Brian Grazer, 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.

    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.

    I'm Black, grew up in the hood, and this is relatable AF. Love my mom, but her alcoholism literally pushed her to dementia at just 52 years old. I joined the Marines in 1997 literally just to be out of my hometown. And I think it's easy to take either the good OR the bad of your upbringing and allow it to define you. There comes a point in time when you have to be honest about all of it...this movie looks like it'll do a great job of that. Can't wait.

      @Manu Ginobilis Bald Spot I'd recommend reading the book too. It was riveting, horrifying, depressing but ultimately uplifting. Sounds like you had a tough upbringing but did good. Kudos to you. Well done. I was blessed....the 8th of 9 kids to parents who didn't have much but we were all loved and all raised with a strong work ethic. We weren't allowed too much downtime. Lots of chores and our Parents pushed education. They knew that education was the key to unlock a good future. It wasn't until I started working in a big city and heard from colleagues of their upbringing that I fully appreciated how wonderful my parents were and now in my 60s, I still miss them every day.

    Netflix peddles mythologies from elites preserving their greed in critical race thinking and erroneous propositions like prop 16. Than they uplift conservative narratives that hillbillies are a product of their own bidding and contribute to their own poverty just so they can inflate their egregious claims of white privilege. So which is it? Which elites are you allowing to exploit and manipulate you for your sense of entitlement to victim hood mentality?

    I hate that this guy thought that his story was deep enough to write a book about. For one he grew up in a suburb between Cincinnati and Dayton, nowhere near Appalachia. Second, there are a lot of people that I know from Appalachia that grew up under far worse circumstances and came out ahead. This story should be about them, not him.
