"Silver Linings Playbook" is a family drama, comedy and love story based on the best-selling novel by Matthew Quick, written and directed by David O. Russell ("The Fighter," "Flirting with Disaster").

Life doesn't always go according to plan. Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything — his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert De Niro) after spending 8 months in a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat's parents want is for him to get back on his feet — and to share their family's obsession with their favorite Philadelphia football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer 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 cast includes Bradley Cooper ("Hangover; Limitless"), Jennifer Lawrence ("The Hunger Games," "X-Men First Class"), Robert De Niro ("Limitless," "Meet The Parents"), Jackie Weaver ("Animal Kingdom"), Anupam Kher ("Bend It Like Beckam") and Chris Tucker ("Rush Hour," "Jackie Brown"). Rounding out the cast are Julia Stiles, John Ortiz, Shea Whigham, and Dash Mihok.

Masanobu Takayanagi is the director of photography, Judy Becker is the production designer. Mark Bridges is the costume designer, and Jay Cassidy and Crispin Struthers are the editors.
