I guess my problem with Silver Linings Playbook is that most mental illnesses aren’t that obvious. The police and judicial system aren’t that nice and light-handed when a grown man continually explodes.
Real life has the bills and regrets. Sure this shows a more emotional aspect of surviving after you have a mental collapse, but it doesn’t have any logic. The likelihood of the two main characters emerging happy together isn’t likely. I remember my sister’s time in the psychiatric ward. It isn’t easy to get out. In fact, she should probably still be there. I guess I feel this film is entirely built on a false premise.
