Next Best Adaptation – “Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir Of A Family And Culture In Crisis” By J.D. Vance

By Nicole Ackman 

Next Best Adaptation is back where we review the source material of the year’s potential Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar contenders. Last time we were here we looked at “Rebecca” by Daphne Du Maurier and “Death On The Nile” by Agatha Christie. Now, we are looking at “Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir Of A Family And Culture In Crisis” by J.D. Vance. We recorded this podcast over the summer but the trailer for the film adaptation by Ron Howard and starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close was unveiled by Netflix today and we figured now was the right time to release this podcast. Joining me for this podcast discussion into the themes, characters and more controversial political viewpoints of this memoir, I have Michael Schwartz & Cody Dericks.

This is a preview of the podcast, the full version of which is only available to those who subscribe to us on Patreon. For the small price of $1 a month, you can receive this episode along with other exclusive podcast content, so be sure to subscribe here.
