Silver Linings Playbook is a unique mix of themes. There’s a lot going on in this movie. Which only makes its themes of mental disorder seem more poignant. Silver Linings Playbook focuses on a man who has just been released from a mental institution. Which, through a series of mishaps, leads to him meeting a woman who is just a crazy as he is (maybe more). This is the first of many movies that star Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence starring opposite on another. Jennifer Lawrence delivers her best performance yet. Playing a mentally unstable person is not easy. It’s part of the reason why it fascinates me so much. The movie also includes football statistics and a dancing competition. Which will all make sense when you see the movie. It’s funny, tragic, and surprisingly heartwarming. You’ll go crazy for Silver Linings Playbook.
