JOY is an upcoming biographical comedy-drama film written and directed by David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle), starring Jennifer Lawrence as Joy Mangano, a struggling single mom of three children who invented the ‘Miracle Mop’ and is the President of Ingenious Designs, LLC. Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramirez, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Isabella Rossellini, Elisabeth Röhm, and Bradley Cooper also star in the film.
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.
