Director: David O. Russell

Star Casts: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro

While most romantic comedies typically contain awful acting, sappiness, and a lot of unsurprising minutes; Silver Linings Playbook is totally different. There might be a little sum sappiness in this movie yet there will undoubtedly be some in any romantic circumstances. In general, however, the majority of the sap in Silver Linings Playbook can be disregarded because of the way that the film is totally unique, extremely funny, and contains extraordinary acting from the two lead parts, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. Silver Linings Playbook is brimming with innovativeness, creativity and minimal on sentiment platitudes. best-break-up-movies-netflix-silver-linings-playbook_image
