'Causeway' Trailer: Jennifer Lawrence And Brian Tyree Henry In Upcoming Film From Apple TV+

A new trailer has been released for Apple TV+‘s upcoming drama, Causeway, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Brian Tyree Henry.

The film will premiere in select theaters and be available to stream globally on Apple TV+ on Nov. 4.

In addition to Lawrence and Henry, the film stars:

Brian Tyree Henry, Linda Emond, Jayne Houdyshell, and Stephen McKinley Henderson. Lila Neugebauer is the director.

Here's the official synopsis:

Causeway stars Jennifer Lawrence as ‘Lynsey,’ a military engineer who has returned to the States from Afghanistan with a debilitating brain injury after an IED explosion. It’s a painful and slow recovery as she relearns to walk and re-trains her memory, aided by a chatty but tender caretaker (Jayne Houdyshell). But when she returns home to New Orleans she has to face memories even more aching and formative than those she had in service: a reckoning with her childhood. Staying with her mother (Linda Emond), with whom she shares a tense relationship, all Lynsey wants to do is return to her work as an engineer. Her doctor (Stephen McKinley Henderson) is wary, and so in the meantime, she gets a job cleaning pools. When her truck breaks down she meets James Aucoin (Brian Tyree Henry), who works at the auto repair shop and offers her a ride home. Slowly they start to rely on each other for company and solace. James, it turns out, is also suppressing his own past trauma. These two damaged souls’ budding friendship forms the center and the heart of Neugebauer’s debut feature—a quiet but devastating, and ultimately uplifting, story about coming to terms and moving forward. 

The film is produced by Lawrence and Justine Ciarrocchi.

Lila Neugebauer, Jacob Jaffke, Sophia Lin, Patricia Clarkson, Kirk Michael Fellows and Christopher J. Surgent serve as executive producers.
