Romcom starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.

Silver Linings Playbook

Entertainment in Video £14.99

The former is Pat, a man trying to rebuild his life after a spectacular bipolar meltdown; the latter is a woman he meets on a dinner date who has some mental health problems of her own, and a burning desire to win a dance competition. Jacki Weaver and Robert De Niro also star as Pat’s parents.

What we said: “Silver Linings Playbook certainly isn’t a gritty portrait of mental illness. However, it is idiosyncratic enough to feel nuanced and interesting rather than rehearsed and pre-packaged. Cooper and Lawrence have a nice chemistry.”

Extras: Deleted scenes and three featurettes.
