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.
David O. Russell has said in interviews that one of the main reasons why he cast Bradley Cooper was that, seeing his work, he noticed that sometimes Cooper looked really angry and tried to suppress it, something he needed for the character of Pat.
This is what I learned at the hospital. You have to do everything you can, you have to work your hardest, and if you do, if you stay positive, you have a shot at a silver lining.
Right at the end when Danny is speaking to Pat's mum about putting the food in breadcrumbs and garlic the camera angle changes and his mouth isn't moving but you can still hear him talking.
There are no opening credits.
