‘At The Sea’: Amy Adams To Star In New Drama From ‘White God’ Director

Following a bit of a break after returning for Disney’s Disenchanted, Amy Adams is back and busier than ever. WIth multiple projects on the way including Night Bitch and Taika Waititi’s Klara and the Sun, Adams has signed on for At the Sea, a new family drama from Hungarian director Kornel Mundruczó.

Deadline reports Adams will star in At the Sea, the new film from Mundruczó and screenwriter Kata Wéber, who previously worked together on White God, Jupiter’s Moon, Pieces of a Woman, and 2021’s Evolution.

Here’s a synopsis of the film: “‘At The Sea’ follows the life of Laura (Adams) after a long rehabilitation, as she returns to her family at their beach holiday home, where she has to readjust to the complicated life she left behind. Now, she is forced to face the following next chapter of her life without the career that gave her fame, fortune, and, most importantly, identity.”

After six Oscar nominations (zero wins, which is crazy), most recently for Vice in 2019, Adams is overdue for her next one. At the Sea could be the project that leads her back into the awards race, and possibly do the same for Mundruczó.
