‘May December’ Teaser: Julianne Moore Is Shadowed By Natalie Portman In Todd Haynes’ Latest

There are some combinations that are destined to be major factors during the fall awards season. Anytime you get Todd Haynes and Julianne Moore together, you know to expect something great. But throw Natalie Portman into the mix, and you’ve potentially got something special. And that certainly looks to be the case with May December.

Haynes directs Moore for the fifth time in his career, as she plays Gracie, a former teacher who became part of a tabloid scandal when for her salacious romance with a 13-year-old student, who later became her husband. Portman plays an actress researching for an upcoming film in which she’ll play Gracie.

Charles Melton, D.W. Moffett, Piper Curda, and Cory Michael Smith are also in the cast.

Reviews were really strong coming out of Cannes, and now we’ll see the reaction to it at NYFF where it’ll be the Opening Night film. Afterwards, May December will hit theaters on November 17 followed by Netflix on December 1st.
