SYNOPSIS
Joy is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who later becomes the founder of a business dynasty, becoming a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy`s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Like David O. Russell`s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.

She mesmerises Russell`s camera, and the director gives her some watchable but weirdly contentless non-speaking set pieces, like pop videos. Joy has divided opinion and I find myself agnostic. ...Read full review
Jennifer Lawrence delivers a tough, engaging performance in Joy, a dramedy by director David O. Russell loosely based on the life of inventor and home-shopping pioneer Joy Mangano. In the title role of the infectiously plucky entrepreneur who parlayed a gig hawking home-care products on QVC into the job of president of a multimillion- dollar company Lawrence makes for a can-do heroine as incandescently watchable as Katniss Everdeen of The Hunger Games but with a Miracle Mop in her hands instead of a bow and arrow. ...Read full review
