Joy Giveaway

JOY

a Rafflecopter giveaway

See Jennifer Lawrence in her 2016 Best Actress Oscar® Winning role!

This is a great film for girls night in, mother/daughter movie night (just in time for Mother’s Day), or a date night away from the kids! I can’t wait to watch this inspirational film and am honored to share the empowering message of JOY with you! For an added dose of JOY, take a peek at the exclusive clip below featuring director, David O. Russell.

Not only did Jennifer Lawrence win the 2016 Best Actress Oscar® for her role in this film, but the cast includes heavy hitters Robert De Niro (fellow Oscar® Winner), Bradley Cooper, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen just to name a few of the actors adding their star power to this story of triumph. Here’s what director, David O. Russell has to say:

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. Oscar® Winner Jennifer Lawrence * stars with fellow Oscar® Winner Robert De Niro, **, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Elisabeth Röhm and Dascha Polanco. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.

*Jennifer Lawrence, Best Actress, JOY, 2016, 2012; Actress, Silver Linings Playbook.

**1980, Actor, Raging Bull; 1974, Supporting Actor, The Godfather Part II.
