In the last several years they have worked together in the multi-award nominated Sliver linings Playbook and American Hustle. They’re back with Joy – and it looks so much better than it should be considering it’s the true life tale about a woman who created a mop. There’s a nice use of The Rolling Stones’s You Can’t Always Get What You Want, crisp visuals and a stunning cast (see below).
Expect more awards nominations. Just Don’t mention Serena.
Here’s the synopsis:
Joy is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.
Joy opens in the UK in January 2016.
