It’s been MIA for more than two years, but Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence‘s depression-era drama, Serena, has finally been given a UK release date but the US will still have to wait.
With the award-winning success of their previous on-screen partnerships, Silver Linings Playbook(2012) and America Hustle (2013), fans of Hollywood duo having been waiting with growing anticipation for the long overdue drama that, until now, had seemed to disappear into thin-air, despite principle-photography on the film finishing over two years ago.
Alas, it appears the wait is over, at least for those in the UK, who will finally be able to see the drama when it’s released in cinemas on October 24. Good news for UK fans, but It appears though that the US will still have to await for it’s release date.
The plot of the film follows newlyweds George (Cooper) and Serena (Lawrence) Pemberton who move to North Carolina during the great depression to set up their timber empire. On top of the world, the couples life soon comes crashing down when Serena, having been recently told she is unable to bear children, discovers her husband has fathered an illegitimate child just before their wedding.
Despite it’s superstar cast, Serena‘s incredible delay in release has been blamed on a number of factors, including post-production problems, director Susanne Bier‘s slight obsessive need for perfection, and even rumours that the film is below-par, which may explain why it’s been absent from the film festival circuit and no trailer has been released.
Serena is slated for UK release on October 24, 2014. For more information, visit IMDb.
