I'l Pass was my opinion before seeing it
Another "Beautiful Mind" RomDrama? Not for me.
But that isn't this story.
It is a story of two people, carrying the battle damage from life's events, who get lost in themselves. Too bad Oscars don't have an "Ensemble" category, because this movie would surely win it. Not a Bradley Cooper fan, but after this, maybe becoming one. Certainly now a Jennifer Lawrence fan now. De Niro? You are seriously going to question a movie chosen by De Niro for some of his best work? Not me, anymore. Jackie Weaver as the meddling hovering Mom hits a new personal best. Chris Tucker hits his supporting role out of the park, while Julia Stiles has survived Bourne to become a ball busting sister-in-law who still loves you (good to see this talented actress getting work. Where is her leading role?).
In the climax of the movie, where everything is on the line for everyone, and hearts get ripped apart, if you don't cry, you may not be human.
