First images and synopsis for David O. Russell's The Silver Linings Playbook

After a few hiccups along the way through development, David O. Russell's THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is finally alive and kickin', and now there are pictures to prove it!

Based on the book by Matthew Quick, the film "revolves around a former high school teacher who was institutionalized for depression and is then released into the care of his mother. He tries to win back his ex-wife but becomes involved with an eccentric neighbor with problems of her own." The film stars Bradley Cooper in the lead role of the teacher, as well as Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence, Jacki Weaver, Julia Stiles, Chris Tucker, and Shea Whigham. Pictured here are De Niro (looking the fittest and most clean-cut he has in a long while), Cooper sporting trash bag attire, and Jacki Weaver.

Synopsis: 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.
