Joy came out in theaters this past weekend and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro.
It revolves around the true story of Joy Mangano, a divorced mother who uses her last monies to invent the Wonder Mop and promote it on QVC in a last stitch effort at making something of herself. You should be moved at the ebbs and flows of Joy’s life, from family emergencies to product troubles and patent issues are thrown at her.
But in the face of it all Joy stands up for herself, putting her foot down against those trying to boss her around and control, and when it’s all said and done she aims to create an empire for herself.
Never speak on my behalf, about my business, again.
When it all failed, due to a bad salesman, Joy stands up and markets herself, her true self and not the one being forced on her by the likes of Joan Rivers (played be Melissa), and sells a brand new mop, made by a working mother, for working mothers.
This movie is enjoyable, and has been nominated for multiple Golden Globes.
Overall it is a 7 out of 10.
