Quick Review: “Hillbilly Elegy” (2020)

I’m sorry…I just don’t get the hype…sure the acting from Adams and Close was standout (as to be expected), but it flatlined for me. This was boring and overrated. I didn’t read the book and honesty wasn’t all that familiar with J.D. Vance — but this didn’t make me want to rectify either. But I will say that the casting/hair/makeup was spot on — so kudos to that!
