I know I’m kind of alone on this, but I thought Joy was great! Jennifer Lawrence gives what I believe to be her best performance since Winter’s Bone. She carries the movie like a professional, covering up potential dry moments. The way that herself and the other actors interact with each other on screen is fantastic. I found its story to be incredibly interesting and well-executed. It may get a little too sentimental with its delivery at the end, but everything that came before makes up for it.
