Back to 2012 Preview: Big Directors
David O. Russell ('The Silver Linings Playbook')
Release date: Nov. 21, 2012
Fresh out of directorial jail following 'The Fighter,' David O. Russell brings forth 'The Silver Linings Playbook' after years in development. Based on the book by Matthew Quick, 'Playbook' follows Pat (Bradley Cooper), a man recently released from psychiatric care, who moves back in with his mother (Jacki Weaver). Robert De Niro, Chris Tucker and Jennifer Lawrence co-star in what will hopefully be the quirky family drama you need after spending Thanksgiving with your own quirky family.
