David O. Russell's Academy Award nominated film will arrive on Blu-ray at the end of April.
In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is preparing 'Silver Linings Playbook' for Blu-ray on April 30.
Life doesn't always go according to plan. Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything -- his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert DeNiro) after spending eight months is a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat's parents want is for him to get back on his feet-and to share their family's obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he'll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives.
The offbeat romance has been nominated for eight Oscars including Best Editing, Best Writing/Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published, Best Actor (Bradley Cooper), Best Actress (Jennifer Lawrence), Best Supporting Actor (Robert De Niro), Best Supporting Actress (Jacki Weaver), Best Director, and Best Picture.
Specs and supplements have not been set yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.99.
