Jennifer Lawrence stars in the new AppleTV+ streaming movie, Causeway. We haven’t seen her in a movie like this in quite some time. Her character, Lynsey, is a military vet who suffered a severe accident while serving in Afghanistan. She needs assisted living for the time being as she goes through physical therapy and cognitive rehabilitation. Leaving the transitional care becomes challenging as she returns home to her mother’s house. It’s a very lived-in, run-down place in a blue-collar community in New Orleans. She gets some easy work cleaning pools, and a trip to the body shop leads to an unlikely friendship with James (Henry), a mechanic who comes with his own past trauma.
