With less than a week to go before its Christmas Day release in the US, a new trailer and featurette entitled ‘A Life of Joy’ have arrived online for director David O. Russell’s Joy starring Jennifer Lawrence. Check them out below after the official synopsis…
JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.
