David O. Russell (I Heart Huckabees) directs this schizophrenic, seriocomic love story based on Matthew Quick's novel. Bradley Cooper plays a troubled Philly schoolteacher who moves in with his parents (Jacki Weaver and Robert De Niro) after spending time in a mental hospital. Our undermedicated protagonist tries to get his life in order and reunite with his estranged wife, but gets sidetracked by his relationship with an equally messed-up young widow (the always-wonderful Jennifer Lawrence). 122 minutes R.
Times and listings are for Friday 10/20 through Thursday 10/26
