While I understand not everyone is a fan of it, Silver Linings Playbook is probably one of my favorite movies. I do have the book, but have yet to read it.

I love Bradley Cooper’s portrayal of Bipolar Disorder. There are parts of this movie that really ring true, and to be honest, it’s a bit scary. One of the ones that are most prominent in my mind is towards the beginning when he’s up at 4:00 in the morning, yelling about Ernest Hemingway. Another scene is when he’s up in the night, looking for his wedding video (and, of course, he’s frantic and yelling). It’s a harsh reminder of past manic episodes.

Bonus: Jennifer Lawrence. I adore her.

So, I’m just sitting here, watching Silver Linings Playbook and eating edamame.
