Episode 82: Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
7 days ago
Join the Bit Players on this week's podcast for some crabby snacks and homemades as they talk about David O. Russell's 2012 film Silver Linings Playbook, starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. The guys break down how well the film handles mental illness through the rich humanization of its characters, how it stands as David O. Russell's best work thanks to an amazing screenplay and performances from top to bottom, and how the fact that Chris Tucker doesn't represent that bottom, but more of an upper middle, is probably what makes Silver Linings Playbook such a great watch.
