Print this page

Are we tired of hearing about Jennifer Lawrence yet? No? Good, because the Louisville native-turned-Oscar-nominated actress is still on fire! (But not literally – if you recall that one scene in The Hunger Games,

you'll remember the flames were fake.)

After deciding when she was fourteen that she wanted to be an actress, Lawrence insisted that her parents take her to New York City to find a talent agency to represent her. This all paid off in 2010 when she received an Academy Award nomination for her role in

Winter's Bone

, a dark drama in which Lawrence's character must locate her father who is wanted on drug charges.

Oscars aside, Lawrence arguably reached the biggest point in her career thus far with this year's release of the mega-blockbuster

The Hunger Games

, in which she received critical acclaim for her performance as Katniss Everdeen.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, the trailer has been released for the upcoming film

The Silver Linings Playbook

, starring... Jennifer Lawrence.

The Silver Linings Playbook

tells the story of Pat (Bradley Cooper), a former teacher just released from a mental hospital. He goes to live with his parents while adjusting back to the world and begins a friendship with Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), who is similarly socially awkward and has a problem with sex addiction.

The film is written and directed by David O. Russell, whose significant previous works include the war drama

Three Kings

, the wonderfully strange

I [Heart] Huckabees

, and the boxing drama

The Fighter

(which received seven Oscar nominations – including Best Director and Best Picture – and won two, for Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress).

The Silver Linings Playbook

also stars Robert De Niro, Chris Tucker, Julia Stiles, Jackie Weaver, and Anupam Kher.

The Silver Linings Playbook

is scheduled for wide theatrical release on November 21. In the meantime, the trailer is posted below. Enjoy!

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
