SYNOPSIS
The Weinstein Company presents `Silver Linings Playbook`, a family drama, comedy and love story based on the bestselling novel by Mathew Quick, written and directed by David Russell.

Life doesn`t always go according to plan. Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything -- his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert DeNiro) after spending eight months is a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat`s parents want is for him to get back on his feet-and to share their family`s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he`ll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them and silver linings appear in both of their lives.

Straight up, Silver Linings Playbook (SLP) is a lovely movie with a heart of caramel - and an occasionally brilliant mind. The story`s endearingly intelligent - ``I apologise on behalf of Ernest Hemmingway!`` yells Pat breaking a window, outraged by a novel`s sad ending - perfumed by quirky, unconventional romance, celebrating a love for life that hurts and heals together. There are tiny quibbles - it could`ve had a tangent less - but at the end, you`re left with pure silver lining and no cloud. NOTE: You will not like this movie if you like yours regular, not eccentric. ...Read full review
