    Maybe Lawrence will have a perpetually youthful face like DiCaprio.

    Pass (boring premise). I’m more interested in the horribly re-titled Accidental Love.

    This is ridiculous. Jennifer looks like that kid’s older sister when she’s supposed to be the mother. Another role that Charlize Theron could’ve done wonders with.

    I’m not here for this, sorry

    First of all, I’m slowly growing weary of that megalomaniac David O. Russell. He is the Kanye West of the film industry (judging by his reaction when Emmanuelle Riva won Best Actress at BAFTA, I half expected him to storm the stage and yell “Jennifer had the best performance of the year”)

    Secondly, I like Jennifer Lawrence. I thought she was very good in Silver Linings Playbook, and she holds down the Hunger Games franchise well. Yet, I am so sick and tired of her playing these roles of women that are much older than her. Not only does it look ridiculous, she is stealing roles from the likes of Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johannson, Emily Blunt, Amanda Seyfried etc. Now you may all laugh at me here, but after doing some research Joy Mangano,  my mind drifted to the likes of Amy Poehler getting the role (Light comedy-drama about a sassy and tenacious woman dealing with a cast of crazy characters. It could’ve taken Amy to the next level of film work after the end of Parks and Recreation. But alas). Yeah, so I am not looking forward to this, because David O. Russell doesn’t take casting into account, and just casts whoever he feels.

    HOWEVER I do want to see Diane Ladd get nominated, just because (a) she’s a veteran (b) her campaigns are the epitome of over the top, and would rival Eddie Redmayne’s and (c) I kinda want to see the Dern-Ladd dynasty get a third consecutive nomination (Poppa Bruce in 2013, Little Laura in 2014 and Momma Diane in 2015). Her and maybe Edgar Ramirez making a big splash in his first major film lead role in America. 

    ‘scuse me while I stan for Jake Gyllenhaal, Bryan Cranston and Leonardo DiCaprio instead of this vanilla biopic

    I wasn’t a fan of American Hustle, thought it was ok, but I adore Silver Linings Playbook and Lawrence. I hope this is like Playbook and less like Hustle

    All of your answers are kind of stupid. I know 15-16 year old mothers. Jennifer Lawrence is 24 years old. Also, none of you have seen a single scene of this movie but y’all as judgemental as shit. I think it’s lame. Let’s give this movie a shot before you are calling it vanilla or terrible.

    Whats with all the David O Russell hate? Did he do anything bad? I know some of you didnt like American Hustle, but still.

    I also agree with some of you on the casting of Lawrence, the realy Mangano was in her 30s when she invented the Miracle Mop, while Lawrence is only 24. I also agree with some of you that it would be believable for Lawrence’s character to have a young child, but in the film she has 3! Also the guy who plays her husband is 13 years older than her.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    I don’t represent the popular opinion, but I love Jennifer Lawrence and and really enjoy David O. Russell’s films. I thought SLP was just okay (the performances were what I enjoyed most), but I loved The Fighter right off the bat and ended up loving American Hustle after seeing it many times mostly for Jennifer Lawrence’s performance. Her performance in American Hustle blows me away every time I see it and it’s so entertaining and ridiciulous yet very real and emotional (obviously the writing was outstanding which helped really make her role). I thought her performance in AH was better than SLP, but that’s probably just me. I COMPLETELY agree about the miscasting, though. Woefully so in both AH and SLP, DOR’s film. On one hand, it bothers because she doesn’t technically fit the role, but in my opinion (again probably not the majority of opinions), she pulls it off and she pulls it off damn well. When I’m watching her performances, I’m never thinking, “She was miscast” or “She’s too young to believe this narrative or character.” For me, it’s only until after in hindsight, but I think she can get away with it. Although her looks don’t match the character and she does ridiculous in the Joy photos, I admit. I have high hopes for the film, but those pictures are making me worry that this is going to be a hyped-up awards hopeful that misses at the Oscars similar to Big Eyes and to its non-informative content for being a biopic (different directors and actresses, of course).
