Silver Linings Playbook is a film based on the novel of the same name by Matthew Quick. The film stars Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DeNiro, Jacki Weaver, Anupam Kher, Chris Tucker, Julia Stiles, . David O. Russell (The Fighter) wrote and directed the film. It is a drama/comedy film that just had one of its first screenings at TIFF. I read a couple of reviews, and I am looking forward to seeing it. Jennifer Lawrence keeps mixing it up in terms of the type of roles she is taking. Both her and Bradley Cooper have stepped away from the “normal” roles for this one.
“Life doesn’t always go according to plan… Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything–his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert DeNiro) after spending eight months in a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat’s parents want is for him to get back on his feet–and to share their family’s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he’ll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives.”
Silver Linings Playbook is in theatres November 21, 2012.
