A real crowd-pleaser at the recent 2012 Toronto International Film Festival (and winner of the prestigious People’s Choice Award), SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is the theatrical adaptation of MATTHEW QUICK’S best-selling novel of the same name and tells the story of a young man trying to reconcile his life with a stay in a mental institution. Adapted and directed by DAVID O. RUSSELL, the cast features BRADLEY COOPER, JENNIFER LAWRENCE, ROBERT De NIRO, JULIA STILES, CHRIS TUCKER and JACKI WEAVER.
Returning to film after an absence of several years, CHRIS TUCKER immersed himself in the role of a fellow patient with an aptitude for escape. During the TIFF press conference to promote the film, TUCKER talked about doing his homework. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
