David O. Russell (The Fighter) returns behind the camera this year with Silver Linings Playbook, a hotly anticipated film that will be getting its world debut at Toronto early next month.
Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence take the lead in the rather excellent cast, and after catching a very promising first trailer back in June, a new batch of images have made their way online.
“Pat Solatano has lost everything — his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother and father after spending eight months is a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat’s parents want is for him to get back on his feet – and to share their family’s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he’ll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives.”
Julia Stiles, Robert De Niro, Chris Tucker, and Jacki Weaver complete the supporting cast, with Russell penning the script from Matthew Quick’s original novel, The Silver Linings Playbook.
Silver Linings Playbook will be released in the US on 21st November, followed two days later on 23rd November here in the UK. I can’t wait. For now, enjoy these new images, and as usual, you can click to enlarge.
