Despite boasting a fantastic cast, The Drop can’t pull itself out of the mire of clichés. Dennis Lehane, whose books have been turned into classics like Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island, adapts his own short story “Animal Rescue” into a near parody of his own tough-guy shtick.
Silver Linings Playbook is out on DVD/Blu-Ray this week. Check out the full list of releases here.
It doesn’t happen often, but every now and then life spawns two people who are so completely right for each other that they could only be wrong for everyone else. Such is the case of Pat (Bradley Cooper) and Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence) in David O. Russell’s SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. Luckily for us, it is not only the characters that share this special affinity: Cooper and Lawrence are perfectly-balanced counterparts in this dark-yet-oddly-uplifting dramedy.
