SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK made me rejoice in the exquisite messiness of love and family and figuring out how to be who we really are. {Yes – rejoice. No exaggeration!}

There’s a bonus for my fellow Alabama Shakes fans – their “Always Alright” is on the soundtrack. You’ll catch glimpses of the movie in this music video, too. {It starts off being a little too Springsteen “Secret Garden”-esque for me with the dialogue breaks, but nothing could irk me for too long with Brittany Howard’s pipes and the who’d-a- thunk-it Jennifer Lawrence/ Bradley Cooper chemistry involved.}

And, while you’re in a SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK state of mind, check out the book by Matthew Quick.  If you’re on Long Island, join me for a novel night out at theBOOKPROJECT in Riverhead on January 30. SILVER LININGS PLAYYBOOK  is our January Book Buzz.

To watch the movie trailer, click on the poster. Don’t miss this one.
