Another celebrated director making a stop in Toronto is David O. Russell, who'll have "The Silver Linings Playbook" under his arms.
The Weinstein Company first started the buzz on the movie back at Cannes, where they unspooled a sizzle reel that was pretty much the same thing as the first trailer that arrived not long after. At any rate, everything so far points to exactly the kind of film that festival audiences tend to love: broadly appealing, yet with just enough thematic material to keep it from being too light. Featuring a great cast including Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, Chris Tucker and more, here's the official synopsis for the film: An intense, loving, emotional and funny family story from The Fighter director, David O. Russell. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence find themselves partners in a secret arrangement to rebuild their broken lives. Robert De Niro yearns to get closer to his son (Cooper), as he tries to keep the family afloat with his compulsive bookmaking.
The film opens on November 21st.
