Your Ticket Inside the Movies


First Stills from ‘The Silver Linings Playbook’ Starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro

Posted November 8, 2011 by Max in Film News

The first stills and synopsis from David O’Russel’s (The Fighter), ‘The Silver Linings Playbook‘. From author Matthew Quick, the film tells the story of former high school teacher (Cooper) who returns home after a stint in a mental institution. He will live with his mother (Jackie Weaver) and must try to win back the affection of his estranged wife. The cast also includes Jennifer LawrenceJulia StilesChris Tucker, and Robert De Niro. After the success of ‘The Fighter’ it will be interesting to see what O’Russel comes up with here. Hopefully this will be an opportunity for Bradley Cooper to get further away for the douchebag roles he’s been known for playing.

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.
