Review: This is based on a real life story of one girl named Joy Mangano who invented a household cleaning device and also went on to establish a business dynasty.
Director: David O. Russell
Actors: Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper and Edgar Ramirez
Genre: Biography and Drama
This film starts yet again Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper (other being Silver Linings Playbook, 2012). As always Jennifer Lawrence is brilliant and holds the whole film together. For Jennifer Lawrence to work with David O. Russell 3 times they must have a good working relationship. The three films are Joy, American Hustle (2013) and Silver Linings Playbook (2012). This is Jennifer Lawrence’s fourth collaboration with Bradley Cooper. All four films include Silver Linings (2012), American Hustle (2013) and Serena (2914). At times I did find the pace of the film very slow moving. What you do believe in are the individual characters. At the Golden Globe Awards in 2016 Jennifer Lawrence won for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical.
