Wondering why times are missing?

Joy

Writer-director David O. Russell rejoins a lot of his cast from Silver Linings Playbook for this chaotic comedy-drama about the life of real-life inventor and entrepreneur Joy Mangano, who created the Miracle Mop. The film—featuring the wonderful Jennifer Lawrence in the title role—is mostly an oddball American success story about the ins and outs of running a family business. Like all of Russell's films, the tone is off-kilter throughout. 124 minutes PG-13.
