I will be received a copy of this Blu-ray for my review. All opinions are my own.

Directed and written by David O. Russell, Joy is the remarkable true-ish story of a woman's struggle to realize a dream. Loosely based on the life of Joy Mangano, the film follows a divorcée and mother of two who's inspired to create a revolutionary new kind of mop, but in order to make and sell it, she'll have to risk everything.

Jennifer Lawrence is the best part of the film. Her performance as Joy is fantastic, giving us a great film heroine that we can cling to and care about but at the same time we root for her slow rags to riches story.

On BLU-RAY, DVD and Digital HD available NOW!


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. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell's previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love. (C) Fox
