Day #59, March 29th, 2016.
Still from Silver Linings Playbook (2012).
Two Jennifer Lawrence posts in a row, I know. But may (the nonexistent) heavens smite me if I’m not in love with this woman.
What can I say? David Russell: a filmmaker of destructively poignant insight into the flawed, but good-natured worlds broken people carry around in themselves. Bradley Cooper: devastatingly handsome, wonderful actor with blue eyes. Jennifer Lawrence: can do and play anything and take you along for the crazy ride. Case in point: a refreshing, off-balance, wonderfully nutty cinematic treat in a dying genre. A perfect date movie, a perfect movie after a long, hard day, a love story that is somehow, magically, the perfect choice to watch alone and feel peaceful joy at the end.
A total winner.
