Film Review Short Shorts: Silver Linings Playbook


SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK (2012) by David O. Russell: 7/10

24 Words or Less: Sensitive portrayal of mental illness concluded by catch-all romcom schmaltz. A lot I enjoyed about it, but the ending was a cop out.

Best bit: Two leads really were great, Jennifer Lawrence’s maniacal outburst at the diner was particularly impressive.
