I was a slut. There will always be a part of me that is dirty and sloppy, but I like that, just like all the other parts of myself. I can forgive. Can you say the same for yourself, fucker? Can you forgive? Are you capable of that?
Silver Linings Playbook scene
It’s Oscars time! Like we do every year, we are going to give you reasons to watch the movies nominated for an award. Today we give you a quote from ‘Silver Lining Playbook‘.
The movie received eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director for David O. Russell. More than that, the movie is being nominated in all four acting categories, the first time since Reds in 1981. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are up for Best Actor and Best Actress in a Leading Role. Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver are up for supporting actors.
The movie tells the story of Pat Solitano Jr. who has bipolar disorder. He entered a mental health facility after he caught his wife cheating on him. During his stay in the facility, he only prepares himself to go out and meet his wife again. After going out he meets Tiffany Maxwell (Jennifer Lawrence) a young widow and recovering sex addict who also just lost her job. Pat and Tiffany develop an odd friendship through their shared neuroses and he sees an opportunity to communicate with Nikki through her. In the end, guess what? They fall in love with each other.
Jennifer may have a chance. She’s young, she had a few great roles including an Oscar nomination last year. She’s competing against Jessica Chastain, Emmanuelle Riva, Quvenzhane Wallis, Naomi Watts. Jessica is an alternative as well.
As for Bradley Cooper, he’s in competition with Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Jackman, Joaquin Phoenix, Denzel Washington. To be honest, Daniel Day-Lewis may be the winner. But we loved Bradley’s acting. He had that blue lost looking in his eyes making you believe he was really obsessed and bipolar.
As for the Best Picture award, no, there’s no chance for that. Too bad Robert De Niro won’t get the award either. He did a wonderful role.
