Jennifer Lawrence returns to her Indie routes in the trailer for Apple TV’s Causeway – streaming globally on November 4, 2022
Apple TV has dropped a powerful new trailer for the upcoming Indie drama Causeway. The movie, directed by Hollywood newcomer Lila Neugebauer stars Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence, and Bullet Train‘s Brian Tyree Henry and promises to be one of the standout hits of Apple’s autumn slate. Returning to her Indie roots, Jennifer Lawrence plays Lynsey, a military engineer who has returned to the States from Afghanistan with a debilitating brain injury after an IED explosion. Lynsey’s journey back brings a conflict that rivals any pain and hardship she had faced in Afghanistan. And soon, she finds herself leaning on Tyree Henry’s mysterious stranger James as they both seek the company of a support system.
The poignant and jarring Apple original movie looks set to become one of the most intense television events of the autumn. And with its glittering cast list, the movie is a shoo-in to shoot straight to the top of our watchlist. Moreover, this represents Lawrence’s first role back after a brief hiatus due to personal reasons. Lawrence also serves as a producer on the project which adds weight to its significance. But don’t take my word for it. Check out the powerful trailer below.
In “Causeway,” the new drama directed by Lila Neugebauer, Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence plays Lynsey, a military engineer who has returned to the States from Afghanistan with a debilitating brain injury after an IED explosion.
It’s a painful and slow recovery as she relearns to walk and re-trains her memory, aided by a chatty but tender caretaker (Jayne Houdyshell). But when she returns home to New Orleans she has to face memories even more aching and formative than those she had in service: a reckoning with her childhood.
Staying with her mother (Linda Emond), with whom she shares a tense relationship, all Lynsey wants to do is return to her work as an engineer. Her doctor (Stephen McKinley Henderson) is wary, and so in the meantime, she gets a job cleaning pools. When her truck breaks down she meets James Aucoin (Brian Tyree Henry), who works at the auto repair shop and offers her a ride home. Slowly they start to rely on each other for company and solace. James, it turns out, is also suppressing his own past trauma.
These two damaged souls’ budding friendship forms the center and the heart of Neugebauer’s debut feature—a quiet but devastating, and ultimately uplifting, story about coming to terms and moving forward.
