I honestly was expecting something completely different when I heard about David O. Russell‘s follow-up to The Fighter, titled Silver Linings Playbook. I was expecting something a little more dramatic and less comedic, but O. Russell is good at fusing the two genres together and maybe Silver Linings is just suffering from an off balanced trailer.
The film stars Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro and it follows Cooper’s slightly (?) mentally ill character as he forms an unlikely relationship with Lawrence’s character.
I appreciate what O. Russell is trying to do with the film, but the trailer left me cold.
Silver Linings Playbook opens on November 21st, 2012.
