Free Movie Silver Linings Playbook April 26
Charlottesville, VA - Piedmont Virginia Community College's Student Art Club concludes its popular Free Movie Friday series for the 2012-2013 season with the romantic comedy/drama Silver Linings Playbook on April 26 at 7:30 p.m. in the Main Stage Theatre of the V. Earl Dickinson Building.
After spending eight months in a state institution, Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper) finds himself living with his mother and father, determined to rebuild his life and reunite with his wife. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he'll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them.
Silver Linings Playbook also stars Robert DeNiro (Limitless, Meet the Parents), Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom) and Chris Tucker (Rush Hour, Jackie Brown). The film was nominated for eight Academy Awards and four Golden Globe Awards. Lawrence won both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Actress. The late film critic Roger Ebert gave the movie three and a half out of four stars and called it "so good, it could almost be a terrific old classic." The film is rated R for language and some sexual content and nudity.
The Dickinson Building is located at the south end of College Drive and parking is located in front of the building. For more information, log on to www.pvcc.edu/performingarts or contact Beryl Solla, professor of art, at 434.961.5362 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
