UK Release Date: 1st January 2016

Joy is the story of the title character, who rose to become founder and matriarch of a powerful family business dynasty (www.imdb.com).

Director: David O. Russell

Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez

At times Joy is a formidable wrecking ball. At others she (and the film itself) make me want to rip my hair out. Represented by the ever wonderful Jennifer Lawrence, Joy goes from being taken advantage of by her family, to creator, business owner and pioneer, but not without trouble and hardship on the way. Her family, including De Niro as her father, are a constant pain. Jennifer Lawrence is an absolute blast, turning a rather humdrum plot into an exciting one. It's about more than just Joy selling a mop, it's about one woman's determination to succeed, and be treated fairly in a male dominated industry.
