Amy Adams and Glenn Close star in new Ron Howard film at Mary D. Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (November 11, 2020) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the award-winning new drama “Hillbilly Elegy” showing Nov. 20-25 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Amy Adams and Glenn Close start in Ron Howard’s new film based on the inspiring true story and bestselling novel.
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.
