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 and directed by Academy Award winner Ron Howard, 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.

    Great movie. The storyline and actors/actresses are amazing in this. The script doesn't seem like it's misreading and the movie music/audio fits every scene perfectly. I'm black, and this gave me a whole new look on "lower-class whites" if I may say? It just made me think about how much people could be going through, and just to look at them and assume something is not right. I won't say I've never judged people at first glance, but I always tried not to, this helped me try harder. :) Superb acting!

    Meh it's OK - Yes, Glenn is amazing but the film is incredibly disjointed with the present day scenes not seeming to fit into the flashback scenes. SPOILER ALERT - there is also a B love story which doesn't really pan out for me. I love Frida Pinto but she is waaaaaaay to old to be playing a college student. She's almost 40!! playing alongside a 24 year old. Also I left the film feeling like... ok cool. What was the point? Everybody has someone in their family with addiction or struggling financially, what was the reason to spend 45 million on THIS story? It' just made no sense to me.

    Ron Howard’s ‘Hillbilly Elegy’ pins the tail on the donkey. Boredom, poverty, abuse cycles, silence pacts, addiction, pain, chaos, confusion, hatred and love…ugly, charred and beaten lives…a window into the spiraling American underbelly that is more comfortable (and convenient) to pretend doesn’t exist. Masterful.

    We watched this past weekend. As someone who's lived through addiction in my own family (albeit alcoholism) I could so relate to the young man in this story. The pride and embarrassment , the things you just don't talk about, the never let an outsider see what is going on inside the family, and never turn your back on family. I didn't even recognize who was in it until I looked up after watching, I was so engrossed in the story they were telling. Excellent acting, excellent movie.

They moved to Dayton in the 50's to work in the factories in search of a better life; a life away from the dangers and hardships of coal mining. This portrayal of a family similar to mine is so spot on that it's eerie.

    This movie was very relatable to me. I was also raised by abusive people who lacked empathy, and had serious emotional problems that they should have been dealing with, rather than having children. Went off to college at age 17, and it was touch and go for a while there. Had to work very hard to grow myself up and give myself what I missed, and I had to figure it out myself (while dealing with a sibling who fell down the addiction rabbit hole). For the critics, they are fortunate to find this movie unrelatable. For me, it really hit home. I thought they quite accurately captured abusive family dynamics, and the behaviors that go hand-in-hand with addiction (and dysfunctional relationships), and how it affects the children. Not everyone gets out of the cycle, . But stories like this one, where the person finds inner resources that they didn’t realize they had, to persevere and get out, I personally find to be very inspiring. I thought it was a great movie.

    This movie was so bad I actually thought it was a comedy - it was so over the top and predictable. if you have not seen it - here's the entire movie in a nutshell - "stupid people making incredibly stupid decisions at every possible opportunity, and then scratching their heads why things turn out bad." Cannot believe Ron Howard directed this - it is absolutely awful on every level. You know in horror movies where they're told "Don't go in that house, it's haunted!"? These are the idiots that go in the house and get slaughtered. Absolutely awful.

    This movie seems like it comes from a long line of movies that centers around blaming and shaming and hating on struggling people, particularly struggling mothers. I grew up poor and under a single mother, and this type of movie tends to rub me the wrong way. Even when it comes to people with addiction, I feel for them and don't like how society commonly wants to just berate these people further into the gutter so they never feel like getting back up. I haven't seen this movie, so maybe I'm wrong, but that's the impression I get from the trailer.
