    Silver Linings Playbook (2012)

    "I do this! Time after time after time! I do all this shit for other people! And then I wake up and I'm empty! I have nothing!" First off, I have to say that the performances in this film were incredible. I haven't been much of a fan of Bradley Cooper in the past, but he owned the role of Pat. He portrayed Pat's emotional turbulence in a genuine manner that was true to the realities of mental illness. Jennifer Lawrence was astounding. She has such a great, forward presence that demands attention, but also reveals a vulnerability to Tiffany. I read the novel in two days before I saw the film, and I felt that the film definitely did the book justice. I thought that the screenplay was excellently written with great comedic timing. Overall, I thought it was a very touching film that was very true to life's whirlwind of joys, despairs, and finding strength to persevere through hope.
