Silver Linings Playbook, 2012.

Written and Directed by David O. Russell.

Starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Chris Tucker, Jacki Weaver and Julia Stiles.


After a stint in a mental institution, a former teacher attempts to get his life back on track but things get challenging when he meets a mysterious girl with problems of her own.

Silver Linings Playbook is something of an anomaly. It doesn’t fit into any obvious genre as it is part comedy, romance, drama, and character study, and takes place in a mental institute, family home, make-shift dance studio, ballroom dance hall, and is full of American Football references and rivalries. The film isn’t one thing or another and this is evident in the trailers and advertising, which do a terrible job of making this film look anything other than a mess.

Normally such a film would be unappealing and unrecognisable »
