Silver Linings Playbook


Silver Linings Playbook
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.

Cape Argus / The Star
Christy Lemure quote iconHumour of dysfunction works well.

Box Office
Mark Keizer quote iconIt's not much, but adult audiences starved for mature entertainment should be counted on to investigate this flawed, if admittedly heartfelt, work.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconSilver Linings Playbook is so good, it could almost be a terrific old classic.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconI didn't know much about the film, its genre or tonal aspects before our press screening, but I really enjoyed it from start to finish. I think many adult viewers will have the same reaction, even if they're not Eagles fans and regardless of whether they have any superstitious rituals they employ in hopes of the movie they're watching will end up being good.
