JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Oscar® Winner Jennifer Lawrence * stars with fellow Oscar® Winner Robert De Niro, **, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Elisabeth Röhm and Dascha Polanco. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.
Balancing motherhood and mogul-ship is no easy feat! JOY is the dynamic story of a family across four generations, and the woman who would go from dysfunction to dynasty because of it. Joy arrives on Digital HD April 8th and Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD on May 3rd - just in time for Mother's Day!

I honestly was not sure what this movie was about. I knew it had Jennifer Lawrence, so it had to be good...I just didn't expect it to be so amazing. This movie is inspired by the life of Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence). It is narrated by her grandmother who always had high hopes for Joy and always wanted her to follow her passion. Joy is creative and constantly dreaming for creating products. Family came first and Joy but all her aspirations on hold, until 17 years later and it dawns on her she can make a difference. With the help of her crazy friends and family, she embarks on a journey to create the best mop you will ever purchase.
I loved her determination. She is truly awe-inspiring as she never gave up, once she put her mind to it, she would not let anything get in the way. It is an amazing movie that features a stellar cast. It is one of the better movies I have seen this year!
