Sample Answer

Lately, I haven’t had much time to go out for a movie since I’ve been up to my eyeballs in reports and presentations. Hence, to relax and boost myself, I rented some good old movies and made myself some healthy snacks for a late-night treat. “Silver Linings Playbook” is one of my all-time favorites and I’ve lost count of how many times I watched it.

The last time I watched it, was a week ago on Saturday night. I don’t prefer Oscar-nominated movies due to their complexity and lack of entertainment but Silver Linings Playbook was an exception. I’ve always preferred something which was sentimental, light-hearted, yet meaningful and this movie had it all. Silver Linings Playbook was an adaptation from the novel written by Matthew Quick, starring two incredibly talented actors Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. This romantic comedy movie is about two wounded souls who found solace again. Pat (Bradley), a former teacher, was just released from a mental institution and was trying to reconcile with his betraying wife despite his family’s protest. He met Tiffany (Jennifer), a woman with problems of her own, and things got complicated. Two people bearing hidden scars with no hope in the future finally had lights in their lives again. The movie was not heavy at all but extremely entertaining with some laugh-out-loud moments. No matter how many times I watched it, I get emotional every time. The underlying message was also a shout-out to anyone who believed they had hit rock bottom: “When one door closes, another door opens”. Therefore, keep moving forward and don’t lose hope. If anyone runs out of movies to watch, I highly recommend the “Silver Linings Playbook” as a change of appetite.
