Here in 2cool4blog, we really enjoyed Silver Linings Playbook and I hope you all did, too. It’s been nominated for best picture, along with slew of other nominations, but I expect it to become just an Oscar fodder that watches on the sideline as Argo sweeps this year (except Best Director for obvious reasons). It saddens me, but at the same time, I’m really glad that this movie got noticed and received the recognition it deserves.
They just released a lengthy featurette about the movie, the inspiration for the book from which it was adapted, and mental illness.
This just makes me want to watch the movie again. Apparently David O. Russell (director), Bradley Cooper, and Jennifer Lawrence will be reunited in another movie pretty soon about a real life underground sting operation called Abscam. They will be joined by a stellar cast that includes Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, and Louis C.K. (two of which actually worked with David O. Russell on The Fighter), so I’ll definitely be looking forward to it.
