Silver Linings Playbook - 4.5/5 stars
I was hearing some great things about this film and so i just had to check it out for myself. So good. It took a minute to get a feel for the style of this film. Its a bit quirky, a bit dark, very funny at times, awkwardly funny other times and in its own style a very touching, cute, well told story of two people with a past and some mental troubles.
Its so nice and refreshing to see a new spin on a cute love story. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence were so fantastic in this. As well as Robert DeNiro and whoever played his wife. Loved her! There have been some great mental illness movies in the past which i have loved. One flew over the cuckoos nest, a beautiful mind, girl interrupted to name a few. Add this to the list. So well done.
I think what says it best is the adorable old couple i overheard as they were exiting the theater. The old lady, "Well that was cute". The old man, "yes, that was really good. What a great date night." Heart melted.
