45. Silver Linings Playbook

Release Year: 2012

Director: David O. Russell

Starring: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro

Pat Solitano Jr. (Cooper) has just been signed out of a mental institution and is back to living with his parents. He had discovered his wife cheating and beat up the man, which resulted in a plea bargain and thus, his stint behind doors.

Now that he is out, he is trying to get his wife back, trying to get his job back, and refusing to take his bipolar medicine or go to court-mandated therapy sessions. Along with his journey to recovery, he comes across a widow and recovering sex addict named Tiffany (Lawrence).

They make a deal that Tiffany will give his wife a letter as long as Pat will be her dance partner in an upcoming competition. As with most comedies, something goes awry and it just makes for a better story along the way.
