Joy (2015) 
Wonder Mops
3/4 stars

I had no idea that 'Joy' was based on an actual person before viewing. Despite that fact, it honestly doesn't feel much like a biopic at all. The story of this woman's hard press to success based on her many unused skills and determination played out in a satisfying matter. This felt very much in line with director Russell's last two films, in terms of style and the fact that half of the cast is the same. Everybody brought what was needed, especially Lawrence. She was convincing and commanding in the lead role (as usual), despite the fact that she still seems too young for the part. Most of her problems in life lie with her family. They've always been holding her back, and they continue to do so throughout the movie even after joining in her business ambitions. An annoyance to some, but not so much to me. The last bit of resolution seemed to easy for her. The complete turnaround from her initial decline was dealt with one quick conversation and I didn't buy it. I'm still satisfied with her triumph because of the journey she took to get there.
