‘Silver Linings Playbook’ Trailer Starring Jennifer Lawrence

Coming this November, Jennifer Lawrence stars in a new comedy opposite Bradley Cooper. Silver Linings Playbook is an adaptation of the debut novel by Matthew Quick published in 2008. It follows the story of Pat Peoples (Cooper) after he is released from a mental institution and attempts to recreate himself for his estranged wife in the hopes of winning her back. Along the way he meets the widowed Tiffany (Lawrence) who has her own mental skeletons and the two form a uneasy friendship.

The film is written and directed by David O. Russell and also stars Robert De Niro and Julia Stiles. Watch the first trailer below:

I really like the look of this film. It’s definitely one of those that I’d like to read the book for, and it seems like a good step forward for Jennifer Lawrence. What do you think?

About Kendyl Bryant

Working as an audiobook proofer at Brilliance Audio, Kendyl has an inexplicable love for young adult fiction (but not for love triangles), 80s music, TV and movies (John Hughes is perfection) and various fandoms, including but not limited to Harry Potter (Slytherin for life!), Doctor Who (even after Moffat ruined it), Nerdfighteria and anything by Joss Whedon. You can follow her on Tumblr where she is an active fangirl and proud feminist/social justice warrior or on Twitter where she basically just retweets the Adaptation Twitter… Your call.
