Story: Joy is an ode to courageous women, who don't let reality strangle their dreams. They rise like a phoenix against all odds wading through life. They survive the company of their own cynical families if need be, to build a future they aspired to live someday.

Review: Joy (Jennifer Lawrence), a hard-working single mother is an inventor. In an otherwise eccentric broken family, grandmom Mimi is her only source of motivation. Mimi believes in Joy's abilities and vision. She knows that one day the girl will be a successful entrepreneur.

Sadly, the rest of the family ensures she doesn't. They clip her wings, burdening her with their responsibilities. Circumstances push her to the breaking point. However, not the one to give up, she relentlessly chases her dreams, pushes boundaries and becomes who she'd always wanted to.

Joy is the story of every woman, who is expected to look after the emotional and financial needs of her family. She better not chase her dreams as paying the bills are priority. David O. Russell's film is an incredible, rags-to-riches tale that salutes the triumph of unflinching human spirit. As Lawrence rightly pointed out, "He makes movies like he doesn't even care if anyone sees them." His knack of presenting flawed, slice of life characters and telling their tale in the most extraordinary fashion is admirable. You feel for their happiness and sorrows. You identify with their dreams, dilemmas and get inspired by their struggle. His actors don't act. They mirror daily life and twisted families that are strangely most fascinating.

Russell's muse Lawrence, deserves the accolades coming her way. She demonstrates the trials and tribulations of mundane life with utmost honesty. She lives her character. She's real, vulnerable and deeply moving.

Heartbreaking, uplifting, liberating...Joy makes you instill faith in your abilities once again. It has that 'The Pursuit of Happyness' (2006) feel to it.

Joy feels small but also distant, and I connected more with Lawrence''s energy than her character. Russell does not introduce the struggling inventor plot threads until an hour into the film, and the preceding scenes are not particularly memorable, offering only glimpses into Joy''s life. Like a counter of ingredients without a recipe card, Joy never comes together as a cohesive whole.

Jennifer Lawrence is wonderful in Joy, her third collaboration with former director-non-grata David O. Russell, but the movie is less impressive than its star. With a start-stop screenplay from Russell and plenty of disappearing characters, Joy is uneven and superficial, yet it manages to entertain. Lawrence plays Joy Mangano, a pioneering female investor and inventor of the self-wringing Miracle Mop; a role she is too young for but nonetheless kills. Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper also re-team with Russell to play Joy''s cantankerous father and a QVC executive, respectively.
