Director David O. Russell‘s new movie Silver Linings Playbook has catapulted itself to the forefront of the awards race after the film’s enthusiastic reception at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month. Bradley Cooper stars as a sad sack loser trying to get back on his feet after suffering a mental breakdown. When he meets a mysterious girl (Jennifer Lawrence) with problems of her own, an unexpected bond begins to form between them.
The movie looks simultaneously witty, funny, poignant, sweet and charming and it seems like it hits all the right notes given all the critical praise heaped upon it. I’m starting to get pretty excited about this flick and hoping to check it out on October 18th at the Twin Cities Film Festival.
