2012. USA. Dir: David O. Russell. With Bradley Cooper. 122 min.
Charmingly bi-polar Cooper moves in with his folks after a brief institutional stint. With help from a sexy-yet-scary young widow (Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence), he sets out to win back his estranged wife. Acerbic humor, drama, and sentiment duke it out in a captivating comedy for the violent neurotic in all of us. Post-film reception/discussion with Active Minds in the Film Studies lobby.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
