Jennifer Lawrence Is a Military Veteran With PTSD in the First Trailer for 'Causeway'
Watch the emotional preview.
Though the trailer is less than two minutes long, it depicts a very emotional story of a military veteran (Lawrence) who suffered a traumatic brain injury while serving in Afghanistan. She must adjust to her new life as she returns home to New Orleans, which is where she meets a mechanic (Brian Tyree Henry), who also has his own grief to deal with. Together, they form a friendship.
Causeway, which was filmed in 2019 but wrapped in 2021 due to delays caused by the pandemic, was special to Lawrence right off the bat. “I felt something in my gut when I read this, that immediate, ‘We have to make this’ [feeling],” she said at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere. “I identify with that feeling of trying to find your home, to find where you have purpose. I left home when I was 14. My relationship with home has always been complicated.”
Causeway premieres in select theaters and on Apple TV+ on November 4. Watch the trailer above.
