David O Russell, director of Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, is back with a new film starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper for this remarkable true story of Joy Mangano, creator of the ‘Miracle Mop’ and one of the most creative new business women in America.

A single parent of three children, the film follows Joy through four generations as she builds her business empire.

A powerful and inspiring story.

Director David O Russell

Cast Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Isabella Rossellini

There will be a BSL Interpreted and text to screen discussion after the film led by Dr Allison Macleod.

Allison will start the discussion by asking 'Can Joy be framed as a story of female empowerment that challenges the patriarchal status quo?'

Dr Allison Macleod is a Lecturer in Film and Television Studies at the University of Glasgow. Her research and teaching focuses on issues of gender and sexual representation, feminist film and queer cinema, and representations of space and place in film.

Film length 204 minutes
