'Silver Linings Playbook'

"The Hunger Games" made Jennifer Lawrence a star, and now this offbeat romantic comedy could make her an Oscar winner, if early buzz is to be believed. The recipient of the Toronto Film Festival's coveted People's Choice Award stars Bradley Cooper as a man fresh out of jail and trying to get his life back on track. Lawrence has already earned rave reviews as the mysterious young woman who may make that possible. David O. Russell ("The Fighter") wrote and directed this adaptation of Matthew Quick's book, which also stars Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver and Chris Tucker (in his first acting role in five years).
