Silver Linings Playbook is a romantic comedy-drama film directed by David O. Russell, from a screenplay by Russell, adapted from the novel of the same name by Matthew Quick.
The film stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, with Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, Anupam Kher, Julia Stiles and Chris Tucker in supporting roles.
Silver Linings Playbook premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival on September 8, 2012, and was released in the United States on November 16, 2012. The film has received critical acclaim.
Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper), who has bipolar disorder, is released from a mental health facility into the care of his parents after eight months of treatment. He learns that his wife, Nikki (Brea Bee), has moved away and his father, Pat Sr., is out of work and resorting to bookmaking to earn money to start a restaurant. Pat is determined to get his life back on track and reconcile with Nikki, who filed a restraining order against him after the violent episode that sent him away.
While talking to his court-mandated therapist, Pat explains again why he was hospitalized. Coming home from work early one day, he found Nikki having sex with another teacher in their shower. Enraged, he nearly beat the man to death. Despite this, Pat doesn't believe he needs medication to manage his condition.
At dinner with his friend Ronnie, he meets Ronnie's sister-in-law Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a recent widow who also just lost her job. Pat and Tiffany develop an odd friendship through their shared neuroses, and he sees an opportunity to communicate with Nikki through her. He convinces Tiffany to give Nikki a letter he has written, which she agrees to do only if he will be her partner in an upcoming dance competition. He agrees, and the two begin a rigorous practice regimen over the following weeks. Pat believes the competition will be a good way to show Nikki he has changed and become a better man. Tiffany gives Pat a typed reply from Nikki.
Things go well for Pat until his father asks him to attend an Eagles game he has bet a large amount of money on, as a "good-luck charm". Pat skips practice with Tiffany to attend the game, but is dragged into a fight and hauled away by police. The Eagles lose the game and Pat Sr. is furious. Tiffany arrives, berates Pat and argues in detail that the way she "reads the signs" Pat Sr. was luckier when Pat was practicing with her. Pat Sr. makes a parlay with his gambling friend that if the Eagles win their game against Dallas, and if Pat and Tiffany score at least a 5 out of 10 in their dance competition, he will win back the money he lost on the first bet. Pat is reluctant to participate in the dance contest under those conditions, and rereads Nikki's letter for reassurance.
Pat, Tiffany, and everyone else arrive at the competition on the night of the football game. Tiffany is horrified to discover that Nikki is in the audience. Upset that Pat may win Nikki back and that she will lose him, Tiffany goes to the bar and has two vodkas. A frantic Pat spots her and manages to coax her onto the dance floor, and they perform their routine. As they dance, the Eagles win their game, and at the conclusion of their set they score exactly 5 points.
Amid cheers from his family and confused looks from the crowd, Pat approaches Nikki and speaks quietly into her ear. Tiffany storms off. Pat leaves Nikki behind after only a short conversation, intent on finding Tiffany. He chases after her and tells her he knows she forged Nikki's letter. He confesses he has loved her from the moment he met her but has taken a long time to realize it, and they kiss. They become a couple and Pat Sr. opens a restaurant with the money he has won.
The filmed earned $443,003 in its opening weekend, from 16 locations. The film faced strong competition from James Bond Skyfall and Lincoln. Expanding to 367 locations in the second week the film, putting it in ninth place, with $4.4 million.
Ray Subers forecast the film would earn $100 million. He predicts the film would start slow but keep going through December, and gain a wide audience, bringing in fans of Lawrence and Cooper from their work on big franchise films.
