Two Line Reviews - #453

Movie: Silver Linings Playbook (2012)

Plot: A marriage breakdown sends a man into delirium and on his recuperation, he decides to stay positive and see the silver lining in anything he takes up. In his difficult execution phase, a widowed dance-show aspirant gives him company and what follows answers the 'if/will' question on their mutual repsect for each others' troubles helping them see through the tough phase!

What Works?
  • This David O. Russell film based on the Matthew Quick novel is a pleasant positive experience and is the 'need of the hour' film for anyone who is bogged down; It has the capacity to uplift viewer morale and mood!
  • Jennifer Lawrence's character is made to earn instant respect and it does, thanks to her great effort & Bradley Cooper comes up with a very good performance.
  • It was a pleasure watching Robert De Niro in action after a long time: His OCD, his reaction after the fight in the ball game & his advice to his son at the end are priceless examples of what he can bring to screen!
  • Anupham Kher's presence as the shrink is a mild pleasant surprise for any Indian viewer.
Optimism is in the air! Feel it!
