So who has seen it? I'm halfway through it and will watch the rest tonight. I'm already a huge Jennifer Lawrence fan and am happy that she just won an Oscar for this film. I've also seen her in Hunger Games, House at the End of the Street, X-Men & Winter's Bone. The movie also stars Bradley Cooper, who I also love as an actor. The 2 of them are bipolar nutcases, so I can relate to them! Awesome thus far, but I still have the 2nd half to go through.
(also has Robert Deniro as Cooper's Dad, and Chris Tucker as another nutter from the hospital)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1045658/?ref_=sr_1Against medical advice and without the knowledge of her husband Pat Solatano Sr., caring Dolores Solatano discharges her adult son, Pat Solatano Jr., from a Maryland mental health institution after his minimum eight month court ordered stint. The condition of the release includes Pat Jr. moving back in with his parents in their Philadelphia home. Although Pat Jr.'s institutionalization was due to him beating up the lover of his wife Nikki, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Nikki has since left him and has received a restraining order against him. Although he is on medication (which he doesn't take because of the way it makes him feel) and has mandatory therapy sessions, Pat Jr. feels like he can manage on the outside solely by healthy living and looking for the "silver linings" in his life. His goals are to get his old job back as a substitute teacher, but more importantly reunite with Nikki. He finds there are certain instances where he doesn't cope well, however no less so
