George and Serena Pemberton (Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, stars of American Hustle) are love-struck newlyweds who build a timber empire in Depression-era North Carolina. Serena soon proves herself to be equal to any man: overseeing loggers, hunting rattlesnakes, even saving a man’s life in the wilderness. With power and influence now in their hands, the Pembertons refuse to let anyone stand in the way of their inflated love and ambitions. However, once Serena discovers George’s hidden past and faces an unchangeable fate of her own, the Pembertons’ passionate marriage begins to unravel, leading toward a dramatic reckoning. Based on the book by Ron Rash, Serena also stars Rhys Ifans and Toby Jones. Directed by Susanne Bier (In a Better World, Love Is All You Need).
