About Silver Linings Playbook
Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper) isn't doing so well. A long-time sufferer of bipolar disorder, he has spent months in a psychiatric hospital after discovering his wife Nikki (Brea Bee) having sex with a colleague. Resolving to manage his illness, he is released into his parents' care. His mother Dolores (Jacki Weaver) is concerned about his emotional well-being, while his father Pat Sr. (Robert DeNiro) has his own issues with violence. When Pat meets the similarly blunt Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a depressed and volatile young widow, it seems unlikely that they will be able to help each other with their recovery. At first Pat ropes Tiffany into his plans to win Nikki back, but she gives him another purpose when she insists that he help her win a dance contest in exchange.
