Silver Linings Playbook
We continue Erin's Birthday Month Celebration with a look at the film, Silver Linings Playbook. Tanya joins Erin to discuss why they both felt seen while watching the film, how accurate its portrayal of mental illness is, why the humor was such a nice touch, determine if the love story was successful, and discuss the problem with David O. Russell and separating the art from the artist. TW: Extensive talk about mental illness, including some self harm behavior and the taking of medication, talk of abuse, both mental and physical, and mentions of slut shaming.
