DVD/Blu-ray Release: Silver Linings Playbook

April 30, 2013

Silver Linings Playbook DVD:Blu-Ray ImageToday, the wonderful and Best Picture nominated film, Silver Linings Playbook comes to Blu-ray and DVD.  The film received critical acclaim, and won the Audience People’s Choice Award last year at the Toronto International Film Festival.  After being nominated for and winning several Golden Globes, Silver Linings Playbook also took home an Academy Award for Jennifer Lawrence’s performance in the film.  The film was nominated in a total of eight categories at the Oscars, including all four acting categories.

Based on the book by Matthew Quick, Silver Linings Playbook tells the story of Pat (Bradley Cooper), a man who has just been released from a stay in a mental hospital and is now trying to find himself and put his life back together.  He is now living back with his parents, and the relationship between them (Jacki Weaver and Robert De Niro) and their son is very well done.  Along the way, Pat also meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), who is also struggling with her own problems.  The film is about family, friendship, and life, and can easily be called one of the best movies of last year.

Back when we reviewed the film on November 30th, our consensus was:

“With brilliant performances from Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence as well as an excellent screenplay by director David O. Russell that perfectly balances both humour and heartache, Silver Linings Playbook is an outstanding film.  **** (Out of 4)”

The Silver Linings Playbook DVD and Blu-ray includes the following special features (en Anglais seulement):

• Deleted Scenes

Silver Linings Playbook: The Movie That Became A Movement

• Dance Rehearsal

• Going Steadicam With Bradley Cooper

And the following are Blu-ray exclusives:

• Q & A Highlights

Silver Linings Playbook is 122 minutes, and is rated 14A for mature theme and coarse language.  You can read our original theatrical reviews here.
