‘Joy’

Jennifer-Lawrence-Joy-Movie-PosterGreat story poorly told.

Based on the rags-to-riches life of entrepreneur Joy Mangano and a less-than-supportive family, director David O Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle) emphasises too often the bizarre and comedic rather than the undermining behaviour of father (an off-form Robert de Niro) and plain nasty stepsister.

Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle) as Joy gamely struggles with a film where the tone is all wrong.
