Jennifer Lawrence has climbed upon a mighty white steed in the latest photo from Serena. The drama reunites her for the third time on screen with Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle co-star Bradley Cooper. The period drama comes from In a Better World director Susanne Bier, and follows a young married couple from Boston to the very cold North Carolina, where the Pemberton's quickly build a logging empire. As the title character Serena Pemberton, Jennifer Lawrence employes some of the gritty backwoods mannerisms that made her famous in Winter's Bone. Here, she is any man's equal, fighting rattlesnakes and even saving one man's life in the wilderness. Take a look as she prepares for her hard journey, one that may not end well for all involved.
Serena follows newlyweds George (Bradley Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Jennifer Lawrence) who travel from Boston to the mountains of North Carolina where they begin to build a timber empire in 1929. Serena soon shows herself to be the equal of any man: overseeing crews, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man's life in the wilderness. Together, this king and queen rule their dominion, killing or vanquishing all who stand in the way of their ambitions. But when Serena learns that she can never bear a child, she sets out to murder the woman who bore George a son before his marriage. And when she starts to suspect that George is protecting his illegitimate family, the Pembertons' intense, passionate marriage begins to unravel as the story moves toward its shocking reckoning.
