Road to the Oscars prt 5
On our road to the Oscars Silver Linings Palybook! The movie is about Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper) who has lost everything — his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert DeNiro) after spending eight months in a state institution on a plea bargain.When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence, who already won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a comedy/musical), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he’ll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives.
The acting by Cooper and Lawrence is great. The way they interact wih eachother is good. This movies shows that Jennifer Lawrence is a fine actress, emotions are running high in this movie and she does it so well. What she did lack for emotions in The Hunger Games she made up in Silver Linings. Robert De Niro’s ( nominee for Supporting actor) character is fantastic, I believe this is the first time I’ve seen his cry in a movie, but that could just be me.
The movie just made feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I made feel happy, so there’s my Sliver Lining. I can’t think of anything negative and I am trying here, but no. But Oscar worthy, I don’t know, but is the feel good movie of the year. The acting of Jennifer Lawrence and Rober De Niro is Oscar worthy. The portaited their charcaters, one could belive that Lawrence is crazy, whity, funny and loveable. De Niro’s too crazy as a bat but a great father figure.
Silver Lining Playbook is nominated for: Best Picture, Performance by an actor in a leading role (Cooper), Performance by an actor in a supporting role (De Niro), Performance by an actress in a leading role (Lawrence), Performance by an actress in a supporting role (Jackie Weaver), Achievement in directing, & Adapted screenplay.
