I've been anxiously waiting to see "Silver Lining's Playbook" ever since I stumbled upon the trailer on YouTube. And especially after all of the awards and nominations it got! First of all, Jennifer Lawrence is my favorite and Bradley Cooper is just handsome as can be (did you know he can speak French)? Just a little snip it of the movie: the story revolves around a man named Pat, (Cooper) who was released from a mental health facility and comes home to find out that his wife has moved away. He builds a friendship with Tiffany (Lawrence), who is a young widow dealing with various issues. They bond together, and try to overcome the scattered emotions that have left them hanging and confused throughout their lives.
I had thought that it may have been a little bit unhealthy to go by myself, and watch a movie about a man who seeks mental help, which is sort of ironic for me! Okay, now I'm just throwing awkward jokes upon myself. It certainly made me understand that there are so many people out there who do feel alone in a situation like this, and this film is for the people who should be aware that they are understood and loved. And it's most certainly true. It's painful to see how people can go through something like this. From personal experience, I still struggle with so much fear that this kind of sorrow and anxiety comes in waves. Going to the movie theater by myself was not a mistake, but a wake up call to realize that I needed this. It was like my silver lining to understand that hope and love is there for me always from the people who truly care about me. And from all of that, I was able to grasp onto my half empty popcorn bag, crying like a baby and dreaming I was with Bradley Cooper.
