Plot: Jennifer Lawrence drove Bradley Cooper mad.


See, I didn't have any expectation of this movie, it was on Netflix, is one of the few of Bradley that I have not seen, and I said, why not?. It started boring, really boring, and it felt slow pace, really slow, it got me scratching my head at points and asking myself, where are we going with this?. However, things started to turn out interesting, once the plot change, and our character began to show their true colors. Bradley, was not the nice guy husband and had an unplanned child. He was also involved in some corruption on his business. His so called best friend, was envious and set him up, his beloved wife made him to commit a murder. Nothing can go right from here and then we star to see how Jennifer Lawrence character descend into madness, triggered by betrayal. This movie, has a great cast, is shoot beautifully and the cinematography was really gorgeous, but somehow it did not resonate that much, because frankly it doesn't seem to be made for big screen release. To be fair, the performance of Jennifer Lawrence here was really good, and this is coming from somebody who is not her fan, and at times I see her as overrated. But here, she did a great job. Bradley, I am eagerly waiting for you to play the role of a villain, I know you have it on you, and you will do great.
