Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence forge an unlikely coupling in the literary adaptation Silver Linings Playbook, which is further revealed in the latest trailer. Cooper portrays Pat Solitano, a down-on-his-luck guy who after spending time in a mental institution returns to the world to find his life circumstance has forced him to change his ways.
The David O. Russell-helmed Silver Linings Playbook is gathering buzz after winning the People’s Choice Award at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. The film, based on the novel by Matthew Quick, introduces Bradley Cooper to Jennifer Lawrence’s Tiffany who is overcoming her own tragic dealings in life and the two unite as quite the odd couple.
The newest trailer packs in a lot of plot, and as is the trend with previews, presents the entire film in two and half minutes. As the story does not hinge upon a revealing twist, cinemagoers won’t find the film ruined from watching this trailer. Instead, it succeeds with the dramatic twinning of humour and melancholy in selected scenes from the film whose ultimate payoff lies in the journey and not the destination. From what this writer recalls from the novel, the minutaie of Solitano’s life is documented in a Patrick Bateman inspired iteration of daily routines that has the potential to boost comedy.
Along for the ride are Robert De Niro, Chris Tucker, Jacki Weaver, John Ortiz and Julia Stiles. The film is set to open on November 21st, 2012.
