This movie is loosely based on Joy Mangano who invented the miracle mop. Jennifer Lawrence in my opinion gives her best on screen performance portraying this single mom’s journey to build a sound life for her children and family. This is one of two movies that Édgar Ramírez stars in this Christmas weekend (‘Point Break’ the other). The soap opera scenes are chocked full of real soap stars that I recognized.

Here’s an Oscar worthy movie and Oscar worthy performances. Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall give spectacular performances (I’d really love to see Duvall win). The main storyline is about Duvall’s character, Joseph Palmer, being on trial yet there are other sidebar storylines that add to the depth of the movie. I didn’t expect the sentimental drama scenes to resonate so strong in the movie, yet they did and gave character to the storyline. Overall, a great ensemble cast.
