After premiering at TIFF where it snagged the Audience Award, the buzz around David O. Russell‘s “Silver Linings Playbook” has perhaps dipped a little as the awards season conversation has turned to “Argo,” but don’t expect that to last for long. The picture opened the Savannah Film Festival over the weekend, Jessie J‘s (terrible) song for the film has hit the web, and with the movie now a few weeks away from hitting theaters, you can expect The Weinstein Company to turn up the heat.
And indeed, a new clip from the film has arrived, and it nicely highlights the chemistry between Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. The former plays Pat Solitano, a man recently released from the mental hospital, who is determined to get his ex-wife back, even though she cheated on him. But he crosses paths with the sexy Tiffany, who has her own baggage, but manages to be one of the few people capable of matching and understanding Pat’s wild mood swings. In this scene (a small part of a larger sequence that’s both funny and dramatic), the pair are out on a not-quite date when Tiffany reveals the surprising details of why she lost her job.
It’s a nice serving from the movie, and if that’s not enough, a new TV spot is below for you to check out. “Silver Linings Playbook” opens on November 21st.
