Home Movies Trailer: Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence in a Potential Oscar Film

I had some misgivings, but David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook” looks great in this trailer. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence co-star with Robert DeNiro and Jackie Weaver. It’s from The Weinstein Company, one of probably four films they’ll try to navigate into awards season. Originally Mark Wahlberg was going to play the lead. But he and Russell had some some kind of falling out after “The Fighter.” And so it goes.
