MOVIE: SIL­VER LIN­INGS PLAY­BOOK K

PRE­MIERE ( Foxtel), 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

AN edg­ily off­beat love story of two highly strung peo­ple re­bound­ing bound­ing from all- time lows. Af­ter a ner­vous break­down, Pat ( Bradley y Cooper, pic­tured) is just another for­mer in­mate of a men­tal in­sti­tu­tion. on. Un­til he meets Tif­fany ( Jen­nifer Lawrence), a beau­ti­ful young widow dow just as manic- de­pres­sive and sharp- tongued as him­self. To o tag this as merely a feel­good movie – or worse, a ro­man­tic c com­edy – is to do it a great dis­ser­vice. The hard- headed hu­mour of the di­a­logue trumps the soft- hearted na­ture of the tale ex­actly when it should.
