Fifth about The Seventh

Silver Linings Playbook

Silver Linings Playbook: it sounds obvious, but the rarity of it suggests it’s a well-kept secret: interesting, engaging characters help a film immensely. The main trio in this one are very interesting, rich and well-played by the actors. (Robert De Niro hadn’t been this good in a long time.) The story itself is little more than a romantic comedy (not that there is anything wrong with that); raised above the average by those elements (and the use of “Unsquare Dance“).
