Silver Linings Playbook Trailer # 2

Silver Linings Playbook, the newest film from director David O. Russel has been getting a lot of Oscar buzz since its release. The film follows recently released mental hospital patient Bradley Cooper as he struggles with his assimilation back into normal life. The cast of characters is unexpected, as is this score which reinforces Cooper's struggles with instability trying to get back on his feet. With tracks by The Alabama Shakes, Jessy J, and Mountain Man, as well as 2 Dave Brubeck Quartet cuts: West Side Story's 'Maria' and one from Brubeck called 'Unsquare Dance', the soundtrack rounds out with Stevie Wonder's 'My Cherie Amour' and the Les Paul/Mary Ford tune: 'The Moon of Manakoora'.
