Best romantic movies: Silver Linings Playbook

Release Year: 2012

Directed by David O. Russell

Starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, Anupam Kher, and Chris Tucker

Silver Linings Playbook is based on the book of the same name by Matthew Quick. It tells the story of a budding relationship between Pat, played by Bradley Cooper, a man with bipolar disorder, and Tiffany, played by Jennifer Lawrence, in Philadelphia.

To me, this is one of the best movies of the 2010s. It was released in the year of J-Law. Jennifer Lawrence starred in Silver Linings Playbook and The Hunger Games in the same year and became a huge star.

Silver Linings Playbook is one of the most decorated romantic movies of the last couple of decades. The film was nominated for a bunch of awards, including eight Oscars, and five in major categories, and four Golden Globes. Jennifer Lawrence won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film.

This movie is one of those movies that pops up on Netflix and leaves a few months later. It doesn’t stick around for long, usually. That might be different this time, but Silver Linings Playbook might not be on Netflix for much longer, so watch it while you can!
