The 66e IBF The London Film Festival, in partnership with American Express, is delighted to announce that Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence has joined the festival’s prestigious Screen Talks lineup. Lawrence, who plays a traumatized WE sailor with a quiet intensity in LFF Special Presentation Causeway (dir. Lila Neugebauer), will talk about her critically acclaimed screen career, which managed to balance the world of serious drama and blockbuster entertainment.
The festival’s Screen Talks series welcomes special guests from both sides of the camera to discuss their careers with an in-person audience.
Lawrence’s Oscar-winning performance in Silver Linings Playbook (2012) not only established her as one of the most talented actresses of her generation, but also highlighted her star power; beyond her acting skills, she exudes a screen charm that has made her one of Hollywood’s most sought-after performers. Alongside her roles in such box office juggernauts as The Hunger Games trilogy and the X-Men series, she’s amassed a body of work that cements her status as a performer who fully inhabits her characters. From her breakthrough role in Winter’s Bone (2010) to American Hustle (2013), Serena (2014), Joy (2015) and Mother! (2017) to Don’t Look Up (2021) and her latest film Causeway, Jennifer Lawrence is a magnetic screen presence. We welcome her to this Screen Talk to discuss her career on Saturday, October 8 (1:00 p.m., Picturehouse Central).
