Silver Linings Playbook
Silver Linings Playbook is a love story about mental illness with just enough comedy to shine a light on the reality of life. At first, the film may not seem like an uplifting film however, the performances of Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence completely sell the movie. Cooper’s character, Pat, remains optimistic even though he is faced with the difficult task of restoring his life back to normalcy after a mental breakdown.
While Bradley Cooper gives an amazing performance, his co-star Jennifer Lawrence, as Tiffany, completely steals the show. Tiffany is a celebration of all things dysfunctional but her down-to-earth personality makes her loveable. During moments of darkness, both actors are able to stay relatable and teach us a lesson about never giving up.
