Joy is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.

As the box office heats up, a slew of winter favorites are finally heading to DVD and Blu-ray, and while we're a little early to catch stuff like Batman V Superman, there are a ton of critically acclaimed movies and big box office releases that are out this month.
April isn’t a great month for DVD and Blu-ray releases. In fact, it would be a patently slow month if not for the huge, long-awaited release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is hitting Digital and is heading to Blu-ray and DVD at the beginning of the month.
