I just saw the movie "Silver Linings Playbook". I'm hard pressed to find a way to describe the movie; I'll just say if you're sick to death of hollywood formulas, this is the movie for you.
I loved this movie and I think Bradley Cooper was absolutely astounding in the role of a less than mentally sound individual, trying to cope. But the movie is so much more than a peek into bipolar disorder; it is truly an astounding film and will probably be in the running for best picture of the year.
My husband, being a shrink, thought the movie would be too much like work, so I went with my girlfriend. We walked out thinking, how do we begin to describe the movie to anyone? We can't, we only recommend that people get out and see it. It's an incredible movie with a stellar cast.
