“I’m doing good, I’m remaking myself”, Patrick assures his parents as they bite their lips doubtfully. Then he hurls Ernest Hemingway’s ‘A Farewell to Arms’ through a closed window and storms said parents’ room at 4 o’clock in the morning, eyes flashing, to vent his spleen on the evils of the novel.

Silver Linings Playbook follows Pat (Bradley Cooper) as he struggles to re-adjust to life in suburbia after eight months in a mental health facility for bipolar disorder. His concerned mother (Jacki Weaver - who gives a fantastic understated performance) brings Pat home against doctor’s recommendations, and we soon learn why as it seems his family and friends are as mad as the mental patients! And then he meets Tiffany, who’s also crazy – and crazy-hot! »
