Netflix is sharing the new trailer for the upcoming film "Hillbilly Elegy," starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close, and directed by Oscar-winner Ron Howard.

The film follows "a working-class family in the Appalachia region of the United States. The actors play a mother and daughter who struggle with finding work and raising their multi-generational family," Variety writes. "The movie is told from the perspective of Adams' character's son, a Yale graduate who is forced to return to his hometown."

"Hillbilly Elegy" is based on 2016 The New York Times best-selling memoir "Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis," by J.D. Vance. The film also stars Gabriel Basso, Haley Bennett, Freida Pinto, Bo Hopkins and Owen Asztalos. Vanessa Taylor, who earned an Oscar nod for "The Shape of Water," penned the script.

The film, which Variety notes is an Oscars contender, will hit Netflix on Nov. 24. Watch the trailer below.
