For my diagnosis paper I chose to do the film “Silver Linings Playbook” by Gwen Blasco and Muhammad Ihssan. I’m going to diagnose the two main characters Pat Solitano, played by Bradley Cooper, and Tiffany, played by Jennifer Lawrence.

Jennifer’s character is also in her early to late 30’s.

In the movie Silver Linings Playbook, by David O. Russel we meet Patrick Solitano Jr. who was a former high school teacher. After catching his wife cheating with the history teacher he viciously beats him and has to spend eight months in a mental hospital. After coming out of the mental hospital, Pat approaches life in a very different way. He is determined to get his ex-wife Nikki back, which he still refers to as his wife.

On March 28th, I had the pleasure of attending the Broadway show called “The Play That Goes Wrong,” located at the Lycuem Theatre on 149 West 45th Street.
