22sli3Life 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 De Niro) after spending eight months is 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. Silver Linings Playbook represents a tremendous moment in Anupam Kher’s career: a triumphant entry into major Hollywood filmmaking with an all-star cast that includes Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence and fellow nominees Bradley Cooper, Jacki Weaver and Robert De Niro.
