Silver Linings Playbook (1012)
Director: David O. Russell
Writers: David O. Russell (screenplay), Matthew Quick (novel)
Stars: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Chris Tucker
After a stint in a mental institution, a former teacher moves back in with his parents, attempts to reconcile with his ex-wife, and meets a woman just as crazy as him.
Was expecting a rom-com, and almost got one. It skirts the edge of romantic comedy and romantic drama, but doesn’t completely go all in to either one. For most of the movie the romantic angle is kind of a back story to the main character’s mental issues.
