Why Did Bradley Cooper And Jennifer Lawrence’s New Movie Fail Miserably?


Susanne Bier’s Serena has it all. Based on an amazing best-selling novel by Ron Rash, the movie features the incredibly talented and worldwide famous Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, an Oscar-winning and critically acclaimed director and a script that was bound to be a hit. Despite all of this, Serena was met with negative reviews and went straight to video.

Instead of being one of the best movies of the year, Serena was a major flop. Although the movie is not that awful, it’s just not good enough. The story lacks coherence, the pacing and editing is incompetent, and Bier doesn’t seem to be able to grasp the feel for neither the Depression era not America. And no matter how much they tried, Cooper and Lawrence weren’t able to salvage Serena.

If nothing else, Serena is the perfect example of a movie gone terribly wrong even though all the ingredients seemed amazingly right.
