7 New Photos From 'Silver Linings Playbook'; Film Gets Released One Week Early In Limited Release Thanks To Strong Buzz

It's unquestionable at this point. Even if you haven't seen David O. Russell's dramedy "Silver Linings Playbook" about mental illness, marital failure and more (which is the boat most of the writers of this site are in), it's pretty damn clear that the film, which won the audience award at the Toronto International Film Festival, is super crowd-pleasing, while sharp, funny and biting (our review from Toronto called it "hilarious and heartfelt"). Russell seemed to perfect the winning ratio of comedy to drama in "The Fighter" and it seems he's done the same with his latest. To wit: word of mouth on the film is evidently so high -- it's played virtually every film festival of the fall to huge accolades -- The Weinstein Company are moving up the film one week in limited release in 10 markets, including NY, LA, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, DC, Miami, San Diego and Austin, who will all get to see the film before its wide release on November 21st.

It's unquestionable at this point. Even if you haven't seen David O. Russell's dramedy "Silver Linings Playbook" about mental illness, marital failure and more (which is the boat most of the writers of this site are in), it's pretty damn clear that the film, which won the audience award at the Toronto International Film Festival, is super crowd-pleasing, while sharp, funny and biting (our review from Toronto called it "hilarious and heartfelt"). Russell seemed to perfect the winning ratio of comedy to drama in "The Fighter" and it seems he's done the same with his latest. To wit: word of mouth on the film is evidently so high -- it's played virtually every film festival of the fall to huge accolades -- The Weinstein Company are moving up the film one week in limited release in 10 markets, including NY, LA, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, DC, Miami, San Diego and Austin, who will all get to see the film before its wide release on November 21st.

Starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook" centers on a man (Cooper) who 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 in a state institution on a plea bargain. When Pat (Cooper) meets Tiffany (Lawrence), 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.

The picture also co-stars Robert De Niro (in apparently one of his best roles in ages) Jacki Weaver, Julia Stiles, Chris Tucker, Shea Whigham and John Ortiz. Seven new photos from the film are above and below. "Silver Linings Playbook" opens in wide release on November 21st and in the 10 aforementioned markets on November 16th. [Images via Kinopoisk and the LA Times]
