An A list movie about Mental Illness?
Believe it or not, it’s true. And with Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Limitless, the A team) and Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games, X Men: First Class) no less.
Cooper plays Pat Solitano, a former teacher who struggles with bipolar and is trying to get his life back after being hospitalized in a mental institution for eight months.
Moreover, the story follows how dance can play a central role in healing processes. So, a movie about Mental Illness AND dancing? You bet I’ll be watching it soon!
Expect a review.
EDIT 1: I started this post on Nov 19. The movie was scheduled to be released on November 21st in Canadian theatres. Of course, by now, I lost the surprise element but I didn’t want to delete the draft.
EDIT 2: I didn’t win the hoodie either :(
