Yesterday I went to the red carpet event of Silver Linings Playbook. I will be posting pictures of the cast at the end of this post except of Jennifer Lawrence for photos of her please go here (she has her own post). Fortunately I got tickets for the movie this morning at 7am so I got to see the movie at 11:00am. Here comes the review but remember that I don’t give out any specific details as to not spoil any of it for yourself.
Silver Linings Playbook is an upcoming comedy-drama film directed by David O Russell adapted off of the novel of the same name written by Matthew Quick. For those who don’t know what the story’s about this what IMDB says, “After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own.” The world premiere was last night at Roy Thomson hall where some of the cast was in attendance; Bradley Cooper (who plays Pat Solitano), Jennifer Lawrence (who plays Tiffany), Robert De Niro (who plays Pat Solitano Sr.) and Chris Tucker (who plays Danny).
Let me start off by saying that the Academy better give Jennifer Lawrence an Oscar for her role in this movie. I am in awe at how amazing of an actress she really is. In the film Lawrence gives off many natural comedic chops which may seem like unfamiliar territory for her to those who have never seen The Bill Engvall Show (2007). Believe me when I say the girl can do it all from comedy to drama to serious to horror.
The chemistry is undeniable between Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper making them a delight to watch on screen. Cooper himself brings so much heart to his role that you can’t help but root for him to get over his mental illness the entire movie. For me, I was rooting for his character to end up with Tiffany rather then his ex-wife’s.
This has quickly become my new favourite film giving it a perfect 5/5. That’s right, perfect! I definitely recommend that you see this movie when you can, the day it comes out.
Silver Linings Playbook has a release date of November 21st 2012.
Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper will once again co-star with each other in Serena (2013).
