Thoughts: From what I’m hearing, if anyone is going to give Jennifer Lawrence’s performance in Silver Linings Playbook a run for her money, it’s going to be Marion Cotillard in this French drama that is arriving on US shores with strong buzz. I’m still of the mindset that Cotillard’s Oscar win for 2007’s La Vie en Rose was one of the most deserved Oscars given in the last decade so there’s little doubt her performance isn’t award-worthy. I can’t help but think of Free Willy anytime I see a killer whale playing a factor in a movie, but I’ll try not to hold it against the film or Cotillard.
