Jennifer Lawrence reteams with fellow American Hustlers and Silver Linings Playbookers Bradley Cooper and (writer-director) David O. Russell for this offbeat biopic about Joy Mangano, the entrepreneurial young mother who made her fortune as the inventor of... the Miracle Mop. But don't touch that dial, because Russell's depiction of Joy's fights against adversity at home (with dysfunctional dad Robert De Niro and the rest of her family) and on the professional front (with dodgy suppliers and Cooper's teleshopping mogul) turns what sounds like a mundane rags-to-riches story into a work of genuine inspiration. Quality performances and feelgood moments guaranteed.
Director: David O. Russell
Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Elisabeth Röhm, Dascha Polanco, Virginia Madsen, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd

Estranged brothers Toph (Tyler Labine) and Cooper (Chace Crawford) find they can't put aside their differences when they're obliged to head up to a remote family cabin in the mountains to evict a squatter. Buried resentment and bruised egos soon derail the plan. And somehow they end up with a useless car, a burnt-out cabin.... and the prospect of being stranded for the whole winter in the Rocky Mountains. It doesn't bear thinking about.

With an absent husband, a wayward teenage daughter, and a dead-end job in a Taiwanese sweatshop, Ling (Shiang-Chyi Chen) feels increasingly lonely and frustrated. Her state of mind is not helped by the prospect of early menopause and the doomful forecasts of her hospitalised mother-in-law. But she finds an escape through her dreams of ballroom dancing... and a tenderly cultivated relationship with one of the hospital's more vulnerable patients. A nuanced and bittersweet drama with an award-winning performance from the captivating Chen.

Director Alexander Payne's bittersweet tale of a loser on a wine-sodden road trip bears similarities to his earlier effort, About Schmidt, yet is even more painfully observant and much, much funnier. The Paul Giamatti / Thomas Hayden Church combo is an on-screen pairing that works like a dream when, during an eventful week, they pair up with locals Maya (Virginia Madsen) and Stephanie (Sandra Oh) and land themselves in all manner of bacchanalian bother. The screenplay Oscar it picked up was one of the best-deserved in years.
