MOVIE REVIEW: Jennifer Lawrence "Joy" (Movie Review)

buzzz worthy. . .



Jennifer Lawrence ("Silver Lining Playbook,"is splendid as Joy, the title character in the "femme vitale" of the holiday season by the same name. AS women of th eleading ladies in young Hollywid" Lawrence has a reputationThe film is about Joy reconnecting with her purpose after sacrificing her ambitions to take care of a co-dependent, dysfunctional family. Coping with the stress and pressure of being the "fixer" in the family nearly causes her to have an emotional break down. Joy, a high school valedictorian, was supposed to do exceptionally well in life. She was that one person everyone around her expected to accomplish great fetes. But instead of going off to college to pursue her goals she stays at home to referee the lives of her divorced parents. Her mom becomes man-phobic, staying in bed all day transfixed to soap operas. (They used the real Susan Lucci in those scenes.) She's the accountant for her father Rudy's body shop that's in the red. Her dad joins her Venezuelan ex-husband living in the basement of her childhood home that is gradually falling apart. Before losing everything, comes up woth an ide that invloved he invntiveness an the fmil's backing The nuances were timed and delivered perfectly. Still all of these failures don't break her spirit. I rate it 4 out of 5 stars for its ability to capture feelings  and paint pictures without using words. Her sense of unconditional love and belief in standing for the things that are right and fair is the energy that feedsher unbreakable spirit. Instd of he message beign that the message is to be your own superwoman first AS an actress Lawrence truly a boss on screens her caracter transitions into being a boss of a product dynasty of her own creation. People who are not on he relvel attempting ot define her
I don't know how she'll do againt Maggie Smith, Lilly Tomlin, Amy Schumer in the Golden Globes' Best Actress cateory tonight because I did not see the performacnes of the other nominnes. Hopefully, the winner will be as convinging as Lawrence was in Joy."
