David O. Russell (I HEART HUCKABEES, THE FIGHTER) returns to helm this gloriously dark, quirky comedy about a bipolar ex-teacher adapting to life after a stint in a psychiatric hospital.

Pat (Cooper) is struggling to rejoin the real world since moving back in with his long-suffering parents, and is desperately trying to rekindle his relationship with his ex-wife after a manic episode landed him in an institution. But when he meets the mysterious Tiffany (Lawrence), a widow with problems of her own, the chance of a brighter future seems possible. Can Pat overcome his demons and start a new life?

Boasting winning turns from a great cast and a sharp script with a feel-good twist, this new comedy-drama is a must-see treat from one of America’s top young filmmakers.
