The ever brilliant Jennifer Lawrence stars in this off-kilter comic
biopic of single mother Joy Mangano, inventor of the self-wringing Miracle Mop. Gutsy and resilient, she battles her chaotic family and dodgy business partners to get her venture off the ground. Not everything comes off, but there’s plenty to enjoy, including vibrant supporting performances from Robert De Niro, Virginia Madsen and Bradley Cooper.
