'Silver Linings Playbook'

In Theaters: November 21st
Starring: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence
Directed By: David O. Russell
Pat (Bradley Cooper), the substitute teacher who may be bipolar, is out of the loony bin after going ballistic on his wife and her lover in the shower. He's living with his parents (Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver) while trying to deal with the illusion that his wife will take him back. Then he meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence) who's suffering her own trauma. Director David O'Russell (Three Kings, The Fighter) pours heart, soul and healing humor into his take on Matthew Quick's 2008 novel. And Cooper and Lawrence reward him with performances that take your breath away.
