The Silver Linings Playbook was a movie that wasn’t really on peoples radar at the start of the festival circuit. Everyone knew it was directed by David O. Russell and had an amazing cast, but that was about it. Then it won the TIFF People’s Choice Award and now it is a serious contender for the Oscars early next year. The film follows Pat, a man released from a mental ward after an incident with his ex-wife, as he tries to rebuild his life and relationships. The stellar cast includes Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and the always amazing Jennifer Lawrence. Watch the trailer after the jump, then read my full review.
