Jennifer Lawrence Says ‘Joy’ Is A Tribute To ‘Women Who Are Unsung Heroes’ | Film News
Jennifer Lawrence, dream BFF and near perfect human being, attended the screening of her upcoming film and hopeful Oscar contender Joy at the Directors Guild of America Theatre in NYC on Saturday night. She was joined by her co-stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro along with writer-director David O. Russell.
During a Q&A session following the screening, Lawrence unveiled that Joy is a tribute to “women who are the unsung heroes of their households”. She also paid tribute to O.Russell by saying that she would do “anything with David until the day I die”. Joy marks the first David O. Russell project with a female protagonist, O. Russell revealed that the characters he wrote for his actors where inspired by “our growth together in the last five years“.
Lawrence also added that her character who is based on real-life inventor Joy Mangano “had a fire and gift that she had buried for 17 years”. The story which is loosely inspired by Mangano, the innovator and entrepreneur behind the Miracle Mop and several other household products, follows Lawrence in the title role as a driven and ambitious woman who is determined to forge her own way in life. Joy will hit UK cinemas on January 1, 2016.
Until then watch the inspiring, empowering and compelling trailer below. I can clearly see why Lawrence is generating major Oscar buzz. The film is clearly all about her and she is enchanting. It looks like we’ve got another Winter’s Bone performance on our hands. I’m (obviously) excited, are you?
