WATCH ME! Jennifer Lawrence + Bradley Cooper in ‘THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK’
It’s a love story between two good looking, neurotic people, whose families don’t believe they should be together. It’s like Romeo and Juliet if they were addicted to prescription medicines and their families used passive aggression instead of guns (Well at least in Baz Luhrmann‘s version they had guns).
I’m not 100% convinced I can buy Bradley Copper‘s neuroticism after watching the trailer but I have faith that Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DeNiro, Julia Stiles and Australia’s own Jacki Weaver can pull this one off.
Here’s the plot;
Life doesn’t always go according to plan. Pat Solatano (Cooper) has lost everything; his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother and father after spending eight months in a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat’s parents want is for him to get back on his feet and to share their family’s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he’ll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives.
