Anyone interested in seeing a film that handles bipolar and depression with realism, sensitivity and intelligence will want to see Silver Linings Playbook. I loved this film. The sincerity and delicate humour behind it made me want to stand up and clap at the end. (I didn't because I feared being sent to Baltimore).
For me, it's remininiscent of A Brilliant Mind, a story of a schizophrenic genius, played by Russell Crowe.
It's sincerity is relieving and inspiring.
