Silver Linings Playbook

By DAVID WEINER

April 30, 2013

The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence turns up the heat with The Hangover star Bradley Cooper for this decidedly offbeat comedy that earned Jennifer a Best Actress Academy Award and a Best Actor nom for Bradley (plus Best Supporting noms for Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver and a Best Picture and Best Director nomination! David O. Russell helms the film that casts Bradley as Pat Solatano, a grown man living with his mother (Weaver) and father (De Niro) after losing his house, job and wife -- and spending eight months in a state institution on a plea bargain. Determined to rebuild his life and reunite with his wife, Pat meets a mysterious girl named Tiffany (Lawrence) who has her own set of issues. She offers to help him reconnect with his wife if he'll do something very important for her in return, and as their deal plays out, silver linings begin to appear in their lives.
