After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own.
It took five years and twenty-five re-writes before David O. Russell could direct it, as Sydney Pollack told him it was tricky to have emotional, troubling, funny, and romantic content mixed together.
You are afraid to be alive. You are afraid to live. You're a hypocrite. You're a conformist. You're a liar. I opened up to you and you judged me. You're an asshole. YOU'RE AN ASSHOLE! Get off of me! He's harassing me! HE'S HARASSING ME!
When Danny leaves the dance studios Pat walks about a meter in front of Tiffany to say goodbye. In the next shot he is standing right next to her again.
There are no opening credits.
