Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper Debate Drugs in First Clip from 'Silver Linings Playbook'Damon Houx |
'Silver Linings Playbook' may be a buzzed about Oscar contender, but more than that, it looks like a good movie. Not a "Good" Movie like 'The King's Speech' but an actual good movie. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper star in this tale of people who feel like damaged goods coming together, and now there's a great clip from the film online.
What's great about the clip is that it plays up director David O. Russell's strengths. The comedy, the truth and the awkwardness of a couple's family-based dinner date has the makings of a great scene. We'll know for sure when the film hits theaters November 21.
Here's the synopsis:
Life doesn’t always go according to plan… Pat Solitano (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 in 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.
