Seeing and Believing 271 | Ron Howard’s Hillbilly Elegy and Sean Durkin’s The Nest
With family gatherings just around the corner (or not) for Thanksgiving, Wade and Kevin take a look at a couple of new family dramas that are just hitting streaming platforms this week! First up is Ron Howard’s Hillbilly Elegy, starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close. How does the cinematic adaptation of J.D. Vance’s bestselling memoir fare in its transition from page to screen? The guys also review The Nest, Sean Durkin’s follow-up to his psychological thriller Martha Marcy Mae Marlene. In its story of a married couple (Jude Law and Carrie Coon) fighting the slow unraveling of their family, does Durkin’s new film prove to be a worthy follow-up?
