Wednesday Wanna-Read: Serena

My Wednesday Wanna-Read this week sounds like a great story of a scorned woman. My choice is Serena by Ron Rash.

This book will be released as a movie, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, in early 2015. 136 more words


Mini-review: Serena

Directed by Susanne Bier

Written by Christopher Kyle (screenplay) and Ron Rash (novel)

Starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Toby Jones, Rhys Ifans, Sean Harris

The extreme saccharine romanticism of Pemberton’s (Cooper) first meeting with Serena (Lawrence) may cause some to wish the film had remained in the can another two years, yet brutal dramatisation of the dangers of logging and a story as melodramatic as they come proves a relentlessly entertaining combination. 101 more words
