Best Actress - Academy Awards 2013 - Jennifer Lawrence - Silver Linings Playbook
“When life reaches out in a moment like this, it’s a sin if you don’t reach back” Pat Sr.
Following a bout of mental illness, Pat (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything: his house, his job... and his wife. He’s recuperating with his parents, Pat Sr (Robert de Niro) and Dolores (Jacki Weaver), when he meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence) a mysterious girl with some pretty significant problems of her own. Tiffany offers to help him reconnect - but only if he'll do something very important for her in return...
"It’s mainstream filmmaking at its best and the fact that it also features Robert De Niro’s finest performance for well over a decade just makes it all the sweeter."
"Silver Linings Playbook, under its bittersweet exterior, explores themes of family, second chances, and notions of what is "normal" in the world. The film quickly finds a place in your heart and stays with you long after you've left the cinema. I strongly recommend that you don't miss Silver Linings Playbook. You'll come out with a goofy grin plastered on your face!"
