Film Review: Serena

On December 4, 2014

By Sophia Whitfield

Serena reunites successful team Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. Shot between Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle it has taken some time to be released.

Based on the 2008 Ron Rash novel, the film begins with George Pemberton (Bradley Cooper) setting his sights on Serena Shaw (Jennifer Lawrence) to be his wife.

A timber baron, Pemberton is keen to settle down amongst his empire in the North Carolina Mountains. However the newly-weds soon hit a stumbling block when Serena discovers her husbandís hidden past. The bleak fog riddled mountains echo the grim state of the Pembertonís marriage.

Although Serena proves herself to the workers in the mountains she comes second in the eyes of her husband. She finds a friend in tracker Galloway (Rhys Ifans) who is keen to protect Serena at all costs. As the Pembertonís business comes under threat Galloway takes his vow of protection to heart.

Serena is film of passion with tragic undertones.
