Film review: 'Silver Linings Playbook'

lasvegasweekly.com
20 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Few things are more reliably embarrassing than Hollywood’s attempts to address mental illness, especially in the context of a romantic comedy (or “dramedy,” since one can only make so much light of a serious mood disorder). Fifteen years ago, As Good as It Gets saw Helen Hunt win an Oscar for making Jack Nicholson want to be a better man, in a painful misrepresentation of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Silver Linings Playbook

  • Conclusion: Jennifer Lawrence is the standout in a tonally uneven, eccentric romantic dramedy that fuses The Fisher King with Romy And Michele’s High School Reunion.

  • Excerpt: From the beginning to the triumphant (if predictable) end, "Silver Linings Playbook" is funny and enjoyable, and has the audience wanting good outcomes in the complicated lives of the irresistible characters. The strong cast bring the story to life with a jangling frankness. Performances are quirky and comedic, rather than screw-ball hilarious, which endows a sense of realism and balance given that the movie dares to dance with themes of mental wellness.

  • Summary: Silver Linings Playbook is een film over mentale stoornissen, American football, dans en uiteraard: de liefde. Gelukkig is dit geen alledaagse romantische komedie.

  • Excerpt: Patrick Solitano is een man met een missie. Een rasoptimist bovendien. Na een tijdelijk verblijf in een inrichting – hij sloeg de minnaar van zijn vrouw Nikki half in de vernieling – is Pat vast van plan om Nikki terug te winnen.  Van zijn driftige vader en overbezorgde moeder hoeft hij geen hulp te verwachten. Wel van de knappe Tiffany, een meisje dat bijna net zo gestoord is als hij. Maar Tiffany wil wel iets terug voor die hulp.

Silver linings playbook

  • Excerpt: Bij de Oscaruitreiking was ‘Silver Linings playbook’ genomineerd in alle vier de acteercategorieën. Volgens ons helemaal terecht! Het is uitzonderlijk dat een film kans maakte op alle vier de acteer-Oscars (Beste Acteur, Beste Actrice, Beste Mannelijke én Vrouwelijke Bijrol). De laatste keer dat dit gebeurde, was in 1981 bij Warren Beatty’s ‘Reds’. Er wordt in ‘Silver linings playbook’ dan ook uitzonderlijk goed werk geleverd door de acteurs.

  • Excerpt: To vingeskutte personer finner hverandre i Silver Linings Playbook , en morsom og rørende historie med godt skuespill av Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence og Robert DeNiro. Regissør David O. Russell forteller historien med et levende og dynamisk filmspråk, som kanskje litt for ofte lener seg på soundtracket for å skape steminger. Men historien er sympatisk, lettlikt og gir nok motstand til at dette føles verken lettvint eller overfladisk.
