Wyomissing, Pennsylvania – Fox Theatres is thrilled to announce the limited theatrical release of Netflix’s Hillbilly Elegy, featuring Wyomissing Native Owen Asztalos as young J.D. Based on J.D. Vance’s #1 New York Times Bestseller, directed by Academy Award winner Ron Howard, Hillbilly Elegy is a powerful personal memoir that offers a window into one family’s personal journey of survival and triumph. The film will open on Wednesday, November 11, at Fox Berkshire, 800 Berkshire Blvd. Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, two weeks before it is released on Netflix. 

Hillbilly Elegy is the story of J.D. Vance (Gabriel Basso), a former Marine from southern Ohio and current 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’s tried to forget. J.D. must navigate the complex dynamics of his Appalachian family, including his volatile relationship with his mother Bev (Amy Adams), who’s struggling with addiction. Fueled by memories of his grandmother Mamaw (Glenn Close), the resilient and whip-smart woman who raised him, J.D. comes to embrace his family’s indelible imprint on his own personal journey.

Wyomissing native Owen Asztalos plays young J.D. in the film. He grew up in theater and acting classes and made his debut as a young Beethoven in Beethoven Revealed with the Reading Symphony Orchestra in 2014. Since then, he has acted in movies, television shows, and national commercials.

The film is available for general tickets as well as for the Fox Theatres Private Screening program. For more information and showtimes, please visit
