Silver Linings Playbook
Handsome (but damaged) Bradley Cooper comes out of a mental institution and crosses paths with attractive (but damaged) Jennifer Lawrence.
I’m not really sure where all the Oscar talk is coming from (apart from the fact that it’s a Weinstein-backed film). The parts of the story which dealt with bi-polar disorder and depression were really well done, and it may be that this is where the chat is coming from. But the plot contrivances of the rest of the story are fine for a bog-standard rom-com, but nothing more.
Bradley has beautiful blue eyes, and Jennifer is turning into an actress worth following (check out Winter’s Bone to see how good she is), but it didn’t grab me as much as reviews had led me to believe.
