I loved this movie. Cooper and Lawrence are great here. But this is not a chick flick nor a romantic comedy. You have to invest some energy through most of this movie into the depths of mental illness and your payoff is a great ending. DeNiro is great also.
I just love the vibe of this story. It seems very real and all the characters are very attractive. Jennifer Lawrence just shines in this...she beautiful, believable and sexy without being exploited...she's really good in this...I think she has a great future...go see this...I think you will really like it.
This is the best of the bunch this holiday season (Dec 2012). I loved this film because you leave the theater really happy. I learned a little about mental illness. I see how we all need to feel success, that we all need to be loved. The two main characters in the film seem like they will never come together. Do they? If so, how?
Jennifer Lawrence deserve Entertainment Weekly's Entertainer of the Year instead of Ben Affleck. He made one geat movie "Argo," but Jennifer made one good movie and two great movies. She deserve the title and rightly so. One movie in which she star in "Silver Linnings Playbook" is proof that Lawrence can carry an audience, like she has with "The Hunger Games." But Bradly cooper als gave a great performance. After he was release from a mental hospital, I had to move in with his parents to start lfe over and as we see in the movie, it won't be easy. Forget "The Hangover," Bradley Cooper gave the peerformance who struggle to deal with his loss and a ability to start over again. Jennifer Lawrence plays his love intrest who has similar problems. Both people need each other to deal with them. There was this dancing competition that has gladly taken the back seat to main issues of the movie. "Silver Linnings Playbook" is a must see and hopefully an Oscar contender for best picture.
Anyone who knows someone, loves someone or is someone with mental illness will recognize the ring of truth to this well written, well played movie, complete with all the humor and angst, genuinely reflecting the reality of living with this illness. Gratifying to see and hear audience members previously largely ignorant of mental illness, leaving with a more informed perspective. As my husband said," I laughed, I cried, I laughed, I cried." It leaves everyone with hope and a smile on their faces.
