Amy Adams and Glenn Close have all but cemented their spot in the Oscars race as fans got the first look at their new film, Hillbilly Elegy.

The Hollywood stars play working-class mothers struggling to cope in the Netflix flick based on the best-selling memoir written by JD Vance in 2016.

The story is told from the perspective of the Yale Law student, who is on the verge of landing his dream job when a family crisis forces him to return to the home he has tried to forget.

It shows his volatile relationship with his addict mother Bev, played by Adams, and his memories of his grandmother Mamaw (Close).

In the trailer, an unrecognisable Close can be seen saying: ‘I thought your momma was gonna be alright, be happy. I know I could’ve done better, but you gotta decide: You want to be somebody or not?’

She also states: ‘Everyone in this world is one of three kinds: good Terminator, a bad Terminator and neutral.’

The film, directed by Ron Howard,is certainly what the critics like to call awards bait.

Hopefully it means Close or Adams might finally be able to break their spell of landing Oscar nominations but failing to get the win.

Between them, the pair have 13 total Oscar nominations and zero wins.

The film will be released in select cinemas in November before it will launch on Netflix on November 24.
