Bradley Cooper plays a man with issues… lots of issues. So many in fact that he had lost everything in his life and was committed to a state facility for the, I believe the medical term is, bonkers. After a short stay he has been released and is now trying to rebuild what he has lost. Enter Jennifer Lawrence. She is just as bonkers. She too has lost a lot and is trying to get back on track. The two are thrown together and eventually solidify a bond.
The film is based on the Matthew Quick novel ‘The Silver Linings Playbook’ with the screenplay by David O. Russell, who also directs. With Robert De Niro playing Brad’s Dad this has some potential. I like the feel of the trailer and I know I have a thing for movies of this ilk. Guess I know what I’m doing in November.
