JOY Warning: this film will move you emotionally unless you left your feelings at home. * Spoiler Alert *

Directed by David O Russell Starring: Jennifer Lawrence. Robert De Niro. Bradley Cooper. Edgar Ramirez. You said to me that David O Selznick married Jennifer Jones, an All-American girl from Oklahoma, because in America all races and all classes can meet and make whatever opportunities they can; and that is what you feel: you reach into peoples’ homes with what you sell. You said that. – Joy Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence) and her ItalianAmerican family across four generations centres on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty by inventing the Miracle Mop and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the way in this intensely emotional and human comedy/drama about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of heartless and unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and vibrant imagination carry her through the hurricane she staggers against. www.moviesbymills.com
