Silver Linings Playbook
Would you like to play with my ball?
A slightly bizarre version of When Harry Met Sally, which kicks off when a young man is released from a mental hospital after treatment. He moves back in with mom and dad. He tries to reconcile with his ex-wife, but an arranged meeting with another potential partner has an unexpected surprise when he is instead attracted to her sister, who has considerable baggage of her own. These kindred spirits begin a relationship full of ups and downs as they help each other normalise ... and hopefully find love.
