movie review; silver linings playbook

Movie/Music Monday…Silver Linings Playbook

So just like Mona Lisa Smile (last week’s movie review), I watched this one because I didn’t think the hubster would be particularly interested.  I’m pretty sure I’m still correct in that assessment, but I’m so glad I took the time to watch this movie!

The cast in this was just plain amazing.  From Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence’s awesome performances to Robert DeNiro, Jacki Weaver and Julia Stiles (always a fave of mine), I was sucked in immediately.  But even with a great supporting cast, if Cooper and Lawrence hadn’t played their parts with such manic perfection, this would have fallen apart in the first half hour.  Their portrayals of people dealing with neuroses, loss, and not fitting in were fabulous, and so spot-on it was almost uncomfortable to watch.

If you haven’t had a chance to grab this one on Netflix, I’d highly recommend you take the time.  It’s totally worth it!
