This slow-burning, acutely observed comedy of manners concerns a dealer in outsider art who threatens the equilibrium of her middle-class in-laws in North Carolina. Madeleine (Embeth Davidtz, Schindler’s List) is a go-getting art gallery owner from Chicago, recently married to George (Alessandro Nivola, Goal!), a near-perfect Southern beau. When Madeleine needs to close a deal with a reclusive North Carolina artist, George introduces her to his family: prickly mother Peg (Celia Weston, The Village), taciturn father Eugene (Scott Wilson, The Last Samurai), cranky brother Johnny (Ben McKenzie, The O.C.), and Johnny’s pregnant, childlike wife Ashley (Amy Adams, The Fighter, Enchanted), who is awestruck by her glamorous sister-in-law. Madeleine's presence exposes the fragile family dynamics as hidden resentments and anxieties surface.
As well as the Oscar® nomination, Amy Adams won Best Supporting Actress awards from the Sundance Film Festival and Screen Actors’ Guild (amongst many others). Junebug also won the MoMA New Directors Award and the Cannes Film Festival Critics Award. Critically observed as being a “small quiet miracle” (The Telegraph) and of having “breathtaking visual textures” (Time Out), Junebug is presented here, anamorphically in its original aspect ratio to replicate the theatrical experience as closely as possible.
