Oscar Nominated The Silver Linings Playbook
(Hamilton, Bermuda – January 28, 2013) The Bermuda International Film Festival presents The Silver Linings Playbook on February 3rd at the Liberty Theatre. This is a fundraising event with the film screening at Liberty Theatre for one night only starting at 6pm.
Life doesn’t always go according to plan. Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper, “The Hangover”) has lost everything – his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver, “Animal Kingdom”) and father (Robert DeNiro, “Raging Bull”) after spending eight months in a state institution on 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 the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence, “ Winter’s Bone”), 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 their lives.
Featuring an all star cast including; Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DeNiro, Jackie Weaver, Julia Stiles and Chris Tucker who makes his first film appearance in five years.
