Seems the leftists & media "elites" hate the move and are giving it bad reviews because author of book is Republican....

In a think piece for The Washington Post, writers Lanora Johnson and W. Carson Byrd fault Vance and his book, claiming that they echo “common GOP talking points — prioritizing personal responsibility over community care.” They also blame the author for neglecting race in his portrayal of rural Appalachia. “Vance paints Appalachia as a near-exclusively White space, place and worldview. Erased are Black residents and their histories in the region.”

The Atlantic ran an essay calling Hillbilly Elegy “one of the worst movies of the year.” Writer David Sims also takes a shot at Vance’s book, arguing that “it largely focuses on the virtues of hard work and perseverance, launching vague broadsides against the American welfare state; the author often appears uninterested in interrogating deeper systemic issues.”

New York magazine’s Sarah Jones called Vance’s memoirs “a fundamentally right-wing book.” “Hillbilly Elegy is a terrible — and yes, offensive — film. But the real problem with it is JD Vance,” she wrote. “The book is poverty porn wrapped in a right-wing message about the cultural pathologies of the region. In Vance’s Appalachia, poverty and immorality intertwine. Success happens to hard-working people, and structural explanations for poverty receive glancing attention when he chooses to mention them at all.”

Jones added: “Glenn Close and Amy Adams have pinned their Oscar hopes to material penned by a right–wing commentator who keeps company with some of the most anti-democratic figures in the modern conservative movement.”

Carson Byrd fault Vance and his book, claiming that they echo “common GOP talking points — prioritizing personal responsibility over community care.” They also blame the author for neglecting race in his portrayal of rural Appalachia.(Was the Title of the movie your first clue?) “Vance paints Appalachia as a near-exclusively White space, place and worldview.(Again, you saw the movie's title, right?) Erased are Black residents and their histories in the region.”

The Atlantic ran an essay calling Hillbilly Elegy “one of the worst movies of the year.” Writer David Sims also takes a shot at Vance’s book, arguing that “it largely focuses on the virtues of hard work and perseverance,(God help us. Hard work and perseverance? Perish the thought!) launching vague broadsides against the American welfare state; the author often appears uninterested in interrogating deeper systemic issues.”

Conservatives are anti democratic? I think this guy is making stuff up.

Watched it last night. As someone who grew up in Appalachia, it had some familiar scenes and themes. But I wouldn’t call it a great movie. I have a problem with a dude who graduates in 2013 and publishes his memoir in 2016. Who does J.D. Vance think he is? B.H. Obama?
