Silver Linings Playbook on Oct 11th

After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife.  Things get more challenging when Pat (Bradley Cooper)  meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own. 
 
The director David O'Russell alternates between comedy and psychological drama in this hugely enjoyable film according to critic Philip French.  The great strength of Russell's writing and direction resides in the way he consistently manages to retain a comic tone without losing touch with the characters' pains and anxieties.  Alongside Robert de Niro as Pat's equally delusional father, Jennifer Lawrence puts in a star turn as Tiffany duly rewarded by an Oscar.
