Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence is ‘Joy’.

Joy is the wild true story of Joy Mangano and her Italian-American family, across four generations, centred on the girl who becomes the woman who found a business dynasty by inventing the Miracle Mop 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.

Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Academy Award winner Robert De Niro, Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, and Academy Award nominees Diane Ladd and Virginia Madsen.
