Jennifer Lawrence is back in the upcoming David O. Russell film, Joy.
The biographical film tells the story of a rising business mogul, played by Lawrence, based on the real-life Joy Mangano—inventor of the Miracle Mop and Huggable Hangers. Full of unpredictable sweeping camera work, fantastical montages, and over-the-top performances, Joy looks very much like an O. Russell movie, but much more epic.
This is Lawrence’s third film with the director, following American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook. The latter earned the actress an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Joy, also starring Bradley Cooper, Robert de Niro, Isabella Rossellini, and Edgar Ramirez, hits theaters Dec. 25.
