The Great Gilly Hopkins Trailer Will Make You Want to Sob in Kathy Bates’s Strong, Motherly Arms

By

Kathy Bates is a phenomenal Academy Award–winning actress who has been in many amazing films, but put her in a big house and blue housedress and, well, it's hard not to immediately think of Misery. The Great Gilly Hopkins trailer seems to posit the question: What if, instead of being an author-obsessed sociopath with a house that smells like cats even though she doesn’t have one, Annie Wilkes was a kindly foster mother with a house that smells like cats even though she doesn’t have one? Either way, somebody's going to end up crying, though in this case, it's you.
