Dir: David O. Russell | USA | 2015 | 124 mins
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Édgar Ramírez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd

Jennifer Lawrence may win a second Oscar for her imperious performance in the triumphant Joy, reunited with her Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell and co-stars Bradley Cooper and Robert de Niro. Lawrence plays Joy Mangano, a beleaguered housewife who in a moment of domestic desperation, dreams up the Miracle Mop; a quotidian invention, but one which turns her life upside down. It’s an outstanding film from Russell, which exploits his trademark zaniness, screwball energy and love of familial dysfunction, but also adds a depth of emotion that makes this a tour de force, and perhaps his most moving work.

“Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper’s third collaboration with David O Russell turns domestic drama into a funny, moving Golden Age pleasure” ***** Robbie Collin, Telegraph
