David O. Russell bought us “The Fighter” and now he’s ready to knock us out with his next film, the rom-com that is “The Silver Linings Playbook”. We’ve bought you some previous coverage before, but thanks to AFM, we now have the first photos and synopsis.
Adapted from the best-selling novel by Matthew Quick, THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is a touching, one-of-a-kind comedy about love and second chances.
Pat Peoples (Bradley Cooper) is a man always trying to look on the bright side of life – the title of the story takes it’s name from the expression that “every cloud has a silver lining.” Released from the hospital after losing his wife to another man, Pat believes this age-old adage is just the ticket to trying to win her back and get his life on track. Trying to remain resolutely undiscouraged, Pat moves back in with his parents and devotes himself entirely to becoming the man his wife always wanted him to be. But it’s an uphill battle. Until Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a beautiful young woman whose life also has not turned out the way she wanted. Together, the couple will try and navigate through their lives and stay true to who they are, always just one adventure away from a unique friendship, and possibly even love.
Robert De Niro, Chris Tucker, Julia Stiles and Jackie Weaver also star in the film which will have a release date sometime in 2013.
