Jennifer Lawrence Talks 'Silver Linings Playbook,' Russell, 'Hunger Games' and Prepping for that Money Scene (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

As soon as "Silver Linings Playbook" played in Toronto it became the front runner for the Oscar. This is something its Oscar handlers were seeking to avoid, but the film then went on to win the coveted TIFF audience award nabbed by such past crowd-pleasers as Oscar-winner "Slumdog Millionaire." Yes, "Argo" and "Amour" and "The Sessions" and the Weinsteins' other TIFF entries "The Master" and "Quartet" are also in the Oscar hunt. But right now it's "The Silver Linings Playbook"'s to lose.

TIFF Brody Diary Day Four: The Delightful 'Silver Linings Playbook,' Sexual and Stylized 'Passion' & 'Secret Disco'

Today I choose David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” to be released in November, over Joss Whedon’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” which does not yet have a distributor. (And over a number of other screenings which either don’t grab me, or don’t grab me enough, or which I’ve already seen elsewhere.) I must really want to see it...

Trailer Watch: Bradley Cooper Plays Tortured Writer With Secrets in 'The Words'

A new trailer for "The Words" reveals yet another tortured writer plot (see a more whimsical take in the trailer for "Ruby Sparks"). In this version, Bradley Cooper stars as a writer who finally arrives as the next hot young American novelist. The twist is that he's living a lie, even from his wife (Zoe Saldana). He didn't write the book--he found it and loved it and submiitted it as his own. But the past bites him in the ass as he becomes a huge success. The movie within a movie stars Olivia Wilde and Dennis Quaid, who is telling the story about the young writer. "The Words" was an official 2012 Sundance Film Festival selection, where it was acquired by CBS Films, and opens in theaters September 21, 2012.
