Trailer For David O. Russell’s SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK Starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence


Here is the first trailer for Silver Linings Playbook directed by David O. Russell; it stars Bradley Cooper as Pat Peoples, a former teacher who leaves a mental institution after four years.  He moves back in with his mother eventually meets a neighbor (Jennifer Lawrence) who’s also some mental issues.

The film has been adapted from the best-selling novel of the same name by Matthew Quick.  It doesn’t feel like an O. Russell movie, which is fine by me.  Cooper is getting better with each role he takes on; he did his best with the lame material in Limitless.  Let me know what you think in the comments below.


Pat Peoples (Bradley Cooper) is a man always trying to look on the bright side of life – the title of the story takes it’s name from the expression that “every cloud has a silver lining.” Released from the hospital after losing his wife to another man, Pat believes this age-old adage is just the ticket to trying to win her back and get his life on track. Trying to remain resolutely undiscouraged, Pat moves back in with his parents and devotes himself entirely to becoming the man his wife always wanted him to be. But it’s an uphill battle. Until Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a beautiful young woman whose life also has not turned out the way she wanted. Together, the couple will try and navigate through their lives and stay true to who they are, always just one adventure away from a unique friendship, and possibly even love.
