Silver Linings Playbook 2012

     Pat is a man with bipolar disorder, he lives in Philadelphia and has spent the previous eight months in a mental hospital.  He moves in with his parents and wants to get back with his wife but she has a restraining order to keep him from contacting her.  He meets Tiffany, she is a depressed and in mourning after the death of her husband.  She knows Pat’s wife and offers to deliver a letter from him to her.
     In the beginning of this film both Pat and Tiffany are so over the top and manic that you wonder if you will trip off line yourself just watching?  They do settle down somewhat further into the film once they unite on a common project.  Pat’s dad has obsessive compulsive disorder and this doesn’t help.  3 ½* (I liked this movie)

122 min, Comedy directed by David O. Russell with Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, Chris Tucker, Anupam Kher, John Ortiz.

Note:  Blockbuster 4*, imdb 7.9 out of 10, 92% critic 88% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
