Following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September, A24 and Apple Original Films’ drama Causeway has received its first official trailer.
The film stars Jennifer Lawrence as a military engineer who returns to the United States from Afghanistan and struggles to adjust to civilian life after suffering a traumatic brain injury. In New Orleans, Lawrence’s character acquaints herself with an unlikely stranger, played by Brian Tyree Henry, and the two “find solace in newfound friendship as they navigate their journey from grief to healing,” according to the streaming service.
Causeway, directed by Lila Neugebauer, marks the first film to come from Lawrence’s production imprint Excellent Cadaver. Filmed in New Orleans, the movie’s production first began in 2019, though it was shut down due to the COVID pandemic and did not resume for two years.
At the film’s Toronto premiere, Lawrence detailed her initial liking for the film’s script. “I felt something in my gut when I read this, that immediate, ‘We have to make this’ [feeling]. I identify with that feeling of trying to find your home, to find where you have a purpose,” she said onstage, via Entertainment Weekly. “I left home when I was 14. My relationship with home has always been complicated.”
Causeway will arrive on Apple TV+ and in theaters on November 4. Watch the official trailer above.
Elsewhere in entertainment, Jared Leto is set to star as Karl Lagerfeld in an upcoming biopic.
