The official synopsis reads: “‘Joy’ is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces.”
With a star-studded ensemble that includes the likes of Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini and Diane Ladd, expect “Joy” to be one of the top speciality releases this Christmas. The movie opens nationwide January 8.
