Apple Originals Films and A24 have unveiled their new trailer for “Causeway”. Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence will star in and produce the upcoming film. The film follows the character of Lawrence “Lynsey”, a military engineer who returned to the United States from Afghanistan with a debilitating brain injury after an IED explosion.
This follows her painful and slow recovery as she relearns and challenges her memory upon returning to New Orleans. She grapples with childhood memories and past trauma as she regains her strength with the help of her talkative caretaker, while reconnecting with her mother, despite their strained relationship. While she’s away, her truck breaks down, she meets James Aucoin, played by Brian Tyree Henry, who works at his auto repair shop and drives her home. Over time, they build a relationship and a traumatic bond.
“Causeway” is directed by Lila Neugebauer (Broadway “The Waverly Gallery”, “Maid”, “The Last Thing He Told Me”) and written by Ottessa Moshfegh & Luke Goebel, and Elizabeth Sanders. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence (“Don’t Look Up,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Hustle”) and Brian Tyree Henry (“Atlanta,” “Bullet Train,” “If Beale Street Could Talk”). The film is produced by Lawrence and Justine Ciarrocchi. Neugebauer, Jacob Jaffke, Sophia Lin, Patricia Clarkson, Kirk Michael Fellows and Christopher J. Surgent serve as executive producers.
