"Fans of Silver Linings Playbook will recognize the quirky but ultimately heartfelt world these characters inhabit. There is, first and foremost, a love story, between a down-to-earth Irishman and an up-in-the-air American woman who makes life-choices by consulting the Choosing Signspowers of the Universe. Eamon is all blarney and puppy-dog affability; Jennifer is tightly wound. That is partly because of the other two males in her life: a brother with serious mental issues and a fiancé caught up in a mad scheme to provide low-cost immigrant housing. Eamon, for all his good cheer, turns out to be fighting his own demons. The final major character is an acerbic Russian housekeeper, played by the award-winning Betsy Douds. It is she who triggers the crisis that ultimately helps the others get their lives in order. This is a story about various kinds of failure to communicate, but there is hope for them all in the end. This award-winning Irish film is very sweet, endearing, and funny."
