It may take SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK (2012) starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Robert DeNiro a few minutes to grab a hold of you, but this movie will definitely leave its mark.

We meet our lead character as he arrives at his parent’s home after an eight month stay in a psychiatric facility, fighting to balance his dreams for the future with the realities of his present life. Robert DeNiro, playing the lead’s life weary father, delivers an unforgettable performance as a man struggling with his own undiagnosed OCD and anger issues. This movie will strike a chord with a large percentage of viewers as they recognize varying degrees of mental illness and the fight to heal within their very own family circles.

SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK gently reminds us that no family is immune to drama, and those who’ve been subjected to court mandated help may not be the worst in need. I recommend this movie for anyone who enjoys a highly charged story balanced with a few well placed laughs. And who knows, maybe ‘garbage bags’ as workout wear will catch on in your neighborhood too.

Nominated for 8 Oscars in 2013 including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress. Comedy/Drama, 122 mins, R, **** 4 stars out of 5.
