‘The Silver Linings Playbook’ Trailer

The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for The Silver Linings Playbook, director David O. Russell's adaptation of the best-selling novel by Matthew Quick. Bradley Cooper stars as Pat Peoples, a man who continually tries to look at the bright side of things, despite his wife leaving him for another man after being released from a mental institution. Take a look at the first footage from this drama, also starring Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jacki Weaver.


Adapted from the best-selling novel by Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook is a touching, one-of-a-kind comedy about love and second chances.

Pat Peoples (Bradley Cooper) is a man always trying to look on the bright side of life - the title of the story takes it's name from the expression that "every cloud has a silver lining." Released from the hospital after losing his wife to another man, Pat believes this age-old adage is just the ticket to trying to win her back and get his life on track. Trying to remain resolutely undiscouraged, Pat moves back in with his parents and devotes himself entirely to becoming the man his wife always wanted him to be. But it's an uphill battle. Until Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a beautiful young woman whose life also has not turned out the way she wanted. Together, the couple will try and navigate through their lives and stay true to who they are, always just one adventure away from a unique friendship, and possibly even love.

Silver Linings Playbook was released November 21st, 2012.
