Netflix is bringing many Oscar hopefuls our way in the upcoming few weeks and White Noise is one of their strongest contenders for this prestigious award. The streaming giant just dropped the first full trailer for the black comedy starring Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig.
According to its official synopsis, White Noise “dramatizes a contemporary American family’s attempts to deal with the mundane conflicts of everyday life while grappling with the universal mysteries of love, death, and the possibility of happiness in an uncertain world.”
White Noise is based on Don DeLillo’s book of the same name and Noah Baumbach was in charge of adapting it for Netflix. This marks his third collaboration with the streaming service, following The Meyerowitz Stories and Marriage Story, which was nominated for six Oscars.
In addition to Driver and Gerwig, who plays a middle-aged couple trying to make it through an airborne toxic event with their four children, this film also stars Raffey Cassidy, André Benjamin, Alessandro Nivola, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Don Cheadle.
White Noise premiered at the 79th Venice International Film Festival as its opening film, where it was met with critical acclaim. It will have a limited theatrical release on November 25, before premiering on Netflix on December 30.
