Silver Linings Playbook Synopsis

Life doesn’t always go according to plan…Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything -- his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert DeNiro) after spending eight months in a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat’s parents want is for him to get back on his feet - and to share their family’s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he'll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives. The Weinstein Company presents Silver Linings Playbook, a family drama, comedy and love story based on the bestselling novel by Matthew Quick, written and directed by David O. Russell (The Fighter, Flirting with Disaster).

The Fight Over The Butler's Title Now Includes A Lawyer Fresh From The Supreme Court The Fight Over The Butler's Title Now Includes A Lawyer Fresh From The Supreme Court
Movie studios and executives go to war with each other all the time, but we rarely get wind of it. Few moviegoers care when a certain exec is fired or replaced with another, when one studio gets the rights to a hotly contested book adaptations instead of another, or even when two studios team up to get a movie made and then fight over the profits-- that's how the Hollywood sausage gets made, and it rarely affects what you actually see in theaters

Tucker will return to a leading role in Relativity Media’s Second Honeymoon, which will be directed by Phil Joanou (Gridiron Gang), no stranger to career hiatuses himself.

One of the criticisms leveled at Silver Linings Playbook is that the ending suggested that love can cure mental illness – an unfounded claim, as I don’t believe that was Russell’s point. Yes, Cooper and Lawrence’s characters found some happiness in each other, but I don’t think Russell believed that their problems were going to go away as a result.

Understandably, all the hoopla surrounding Silver Linings Playbook has other studios looking at Quick's works for possible projects, and DreamWorks is now lining up an adaptation of their own. Rather than snagging the rights to one of Quick's three other published novels, DreamWorks acquired The Good Luck of Right Now toward the tale-end of award season, when it was only in manuscript form.

Holiday Weekend Box Office: Mama and Obama Lead MLK Jr. Weekend Holiday Weekend Box Office: Mama and Obama Lead MLK Jr. Weekend
Martin Luther King Jr. weekend brought with it the first Schwarzenegger headlined movie in almost a decade, something of a box office coup for the award season's darling Silver Linings Playbook, and somewhere in there President Obama officially started his second term. But the most interesting bit of news? The number one spot went to a PG-13 horror movie.

After three weeks building up buzz in small release, Zero Dark Thirty expanded to almost 3,000 locations this weekend, taking the number one spot with $24 million. Not bad for a heavy political drama arriving after the holidays, but perhaps not good enough for a movie made on a $40 million budget. If awards season is kind to the project, it may see enough continued sales to be as successful at the box office.
