Movie Review :: Silver Linings Playbook

image via

Silver Linings Playbook has to be one of my favorite movies. EVER! It goes without saying that I’m a sucker for romance, but I was blown away by the way this film explored what it means to be crazy. What it means to be human. What is crazy? Is the guy in the mental institution crazy or is the weekend football fan? Is it our parents? Is it the police? Is it love?  Life is about dealing with all kinds of crazy and finding our humanity in the midst of it all. Crazy connects us. Silver Linings Playbook offers a touching reminder that life is never perfect and the connections between us make it worthwile.

“There’s only one very good life, and that’s the life you know you want, and you make it yourself.” –Diana Vreeland

This weekend I saw “Diana Vreeland- The Eye Has to Travel.” Mrs. Vreeland’s passion for style, fashion, and every other aspect of her work is truly inspiring. Even though she wasn’t conventionally beautiful, she was the embodiment of what I find most beautiful in people: spirit and originality. The film is imbued with her infectious spirit. I loved it!
