Serena, starring, for the third time together, Academy Award Winner Jennifer Lawrence and Academy Award Nominee Bradley Cooper, Serena describes the love story between a married couple. George and Serena Pemberton.
We have been sent over the first image of Jennifer as Serena, quite a simple image of the actress on a horse. An image that doesn’t give anything away. Well, not more than the below synopsis does.
There are other synopses around that does give out one of the major plot points mentioned below.
No US release date has been announced, even if the US rights were obtained a year ago. A year after filming wrapped. It seems that the film took 18 months to get finished. This pause was, in part, down to the director, Susanne Bier, having to promote another one of her films.
There maybe other reasons as this news has come out of the blue as not much has been heard of the film for the last two years. This does tend to indicate that there is an issue with the film. It hasn’t been shown at any film festival or even a trailer. The only thing that we have is the synopsis and a picture of Jennifer Lawrence on a horse!
As with, modern, films it already has its own social media presence with a Facebook page and a Twitter account. The way that modern films engage with their audience. Both are not that well used as they have only put a couple of entries up over August. This should pick up over the next few weeks leading up to the film’s UK release.
North Carolina mountains at the end of the 1920s – George and Serena Pemberton, love-struck newly-weds, begin to build a timber empire. Serena soon proves herself to be equal to any man: overseeing loggers, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man’s life in the wilderness. With power and influence now in their hands, the Pembertons refuse to let anyone stand in the way of their inflated love and ambitions. However, once Serena discovers George’s hidden past and faces an unchangeable fate of her own, the Pemberton’s passionate marriage begins to unravel leading toward a dramatic reckoning.
