“Silver Linings Playbook” — about a troubled man (Bradley Cooper) trying to readjust to life after an eight-month stay in a mental institution — fits neatly into that oeuvre. A crowd-pleasing dramatic comedy that is both smart and funny — a rewarding but all together rare combination — it is also a film that, between the laughs, offers a moving and sensitive portrayal of mental illness.
