Movie Review: Silver Linings Playbook

CRAZY IN LOVE. David O. Russel is a director known for his highly stylized, often improvisational films that tackle deep emotional issues, such as I (heart) Huckabees and The Fighter.

His newest, Silver Linings Playbook, stars The Hangover’s Bradley Cooper and new “it” girl actress Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) as two highly dysfunctional human beings, each with nearly debilitating mental disorders, who find happiness in each other’s madness. As usual, Russell manages to strike a nice balance between zany comedy and heavy drama, turning this into another critical darling.

Cooper and Lawrence both earned nods for their charming takes on craziness, while Robert DeNiro and Jacki Weaver earned nominations for their roles as Cooper’s exasperated parents.
