Not what I expected. In a good way.,
This review is from: Silver Linings Playbook [DVD] (DVD)
At the beginning of this film I had no idea what was going on. I expected typical formula, soppy rom com, however I was very surprised, but in a good way!
The two characters in this film are messed up and flawed yet perfect for eachother. Bradley Cooper's character seems incapable of seeing beyond his one man mission to win over his estranged ex wife.
I kind of expected it to have an unhappy ending...and I won't spoil it but I was surprised again. It wasn't some little indie flick trying to be dark and twisted. It was a realistic portrayal of REAL people with REAL problems.
This is the best romantic film I've seen in a very long time.
