JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.
I enjoyed watching Joy and how Jennifer Lawrence portrayed the character, she felt real and natural. Like in “Silver Linings Playbook” Lawrence plays a more serious role here in a more dramatic movie than she usually does and she nails it again. The movie it self is interesting as it is based on a true story about how the young inventor Joy started her own imperium. Overall a great story, great actors and a movie that can motivate one another.
