Serena is set during the Depression era, and the film sort-of encircles the life of Serena Pemberton, who runs her husband’s timber baron. Set in North Carolina, she realises that she cannot have children of her own, and as a result grows a cruel crusade against Copper’s illegitimate son. Bradley Cooper essays the role of her husband, the protagonist in the film, so don’t let the title fool you.
His attractive wife is perfectly fine-and-dandy during the 1930s, for the most part of the marriage but when the question of a heir begins to surface, it gets all too much for Serena who starts to plot on ways to take control. The film will premiere nationwide on October 24.
