He's been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and recently released from a psychiatric hospital. She's struggling to process the loss of her husband. Can they help each other heal?
Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright are joined by actor Mason Davis as they talk about this film - from the interesting (and often dysfunctional) relationships, to the outstanding performances, to how realistic the portrayals of mental illness and therapy are. Mason, Alan, and Jonathan share some of their personal experiences and insights on these topics, and their thoughts on the romance between Pat and Tiffany.
Director David O. Russell got an Oscar-winning performance from Jennifer Lawrence, and knock-out performances from Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, and (of all people) Chris Tucker in this simultaneously quirky and introspective acting showcase.
