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. Directed by David O. Russell.
