- Film Festival
One of the shining standouts of the 21st Philadelphia Film Festival and of the whole year was David O. Russell’s ‘Silver Linings Playbook’. Set in Philadelphia, last year’s opening night film starring Bradley Cooper, Robert DeNiro, and Jennifer Lawrence follows a bi-polar man who recently gets released from a mental hospital and befriends a mysterious girl with her own baggage who agrees to help him reconcile with his estranged wife. But through a series of events that involves dancing and the Philadelphia Eagles, the pair grows closer together despite all their problems.
In just a few short hours, the 21st Philadelphia Film Festival kicks off this year’s festivities with a screening of David O. Russell’s ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Robert DeNiro.
If you managed to get tickets or snag a badge (since that’s the only way you’ll get into this SOLD OUT event), you’ll be rubbing elbows with ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ author Matthew Quick, producers Donna Gigliotti and Bruce Cohen, and director O. Russell since they’ll all be making appearances right here in Philly for the festival.
