‘It’s a Wonderful Life’: 10 Things I Learned From My New ‘It’ Role
It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book I haven’t seen in the cinema, and I’ve spent more time reading the book than the movie adaptation.
And yet it’s still hard to imagine a book more different from its book counterpart.
“It’s been such a pleasure to work with the cast and crew,” says actress Jennifer Lawrence, who plays the titular heroine.
“They’re such a delight to work around.
I think I’m going to love it.”
Lawrence, whose mother was a child actress and producer, first read The Umbrella Academy as a child, and after she watched it at age 8, she wanted to do the same.
“I wanted to be a real person,” she says.
“Like a kid, like a little girl, like little girl in a world where you don’t see your mom and dad, and you see the world of a person.
I’ve always wanted to write my own story, and this is the best chance to do it.”
The film, directed by Adam Wingard, was released in December and has earned $1.5 billion worldwide, including an Oscar nomination for Lawrence for best supporting actress.
And the Academy is excited to see that the movie will continue to receive a critical reception.
“The Academy is always looking for ways to support independent filmmaking, and The Umbrellas is no exception,” says the academy’s chair, Patricia Arquette.
“We are thrilled to have a great partnership with Jennifer and Adam on this project, and look forward to seeing the results.”
Jennifer Lawrence stars as the character “Owen” in the film adaptation of The Umbellas, which is currently in theaters.
The Umbllas is the fourth instalment of the James Joyce biopic series, and the first to be adapted from a book rather than a film.
“My favorite book is Joyce’s Ulysses,” says Lawrence.
“This is a new world, this is a totally different time, and so it’s a really exciting time for us.
I’ll be the actress. “
And I’m not just playing this character.
I’ll be the actress.
I have to play the part.”
Lawrence says the movie is also going to give her more time to prepare for her next big film role.
“That’s going to be interesting because it’s going into a new era, so I’m very much looking forward to the challenge,” she said.
But when you are in it, I can’t wait to be in the theater with my kids.” “
For me, it’s so much easier to read the book when you’re not in it.
But when you are in it, I can’t wait to be in the theater with my kids.”
