Is Causeway based on a true story?

No, dam not based on a true story. However, the film’s narrative is one that many returning soldiers can probably relate to, and that makes this story even more tragic. Hopefully, dam manages to pay respect to these soldiers and to make their stories known to the general public.

What is Causeway about?

For now, this is the closest we can get to a plot synopsis dam:

Causeway is an intimate portrait of a soldier struggling to adjust to life after returning to New Orleans.

Based on what little there is, this film could offer a dark but effective look at dealing with trauma. Jane Schoettlethis year’s Special Presentations programmer at TIFF wrote that dam “shows an unusual sensitivity to the way we deal with trauma while simultaneously reaching out and protecting ourselves from further harm.” She also wrote that the film “is about what it means to share a home, yourself to draw on an all-star crew of artists … to make New Orleans a central figure in this tale of trust, tenderness, and letting the world into your heart, piece by piece.” It will be interesting to see how the filmmakers will turn New Orleans into a character, but the story will still be very emotional.

Is there a trailer for Causeway?

A trailer for it has not yet been released dam at this time, but we will update this page as soon as it becomes available.

When will Causeway be published and where can it be viewed?

dam will be released on November 4, 2022 AppleTV+, just in time for awards season. It’s not yet known if the film will be in theaters, but considering the Academy has reinstated rules that all films must be in theaters for at least seven days in one of six approved metro areas dam will most likely get a limited theatrical run.

Before, dam celebrated its world premiere at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 10th. The film will also have its European premiere at the British Film Institute’s (BFI) London Film Festival 2022 on October 8th.

Lawrence explained to Vogue how the COVID-19 production delay has impacted their approach to this role:

“Her unsustainable home, her inability to commit to one thing or the other because of these internal injuries, which are completely invisible but huge — I think I connected to that at this particular point in my life. There was so much going on with me at the time that I didn’t realize it. Until I was back, pregnant, married, made it. And I just thought Oh, that’s a woman afraid to commit.

Brian Tyree Henry plays James, a mechanic with similar injuries who bonds with Lynsey over their shared trauma. Henry is best known for gambling Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles in the FX series Atlanta, which earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

“I’ve always been very aware of what the relationships are like when you have a black man and a white woman in this society. It has something to do with someone seeing another person for who they really are because of what they lost. And that’s what you’re into. And you’re like, Oh, well, I lost too. Will we keep losing together? Are we building each other up?
