Acting since the age of five, Sarah Hyland is no stranger to the world of small and silver screen comedy. Best known as Haley Dunphy on ABC’s ‘Modern Family,’ Hyland has also worked with the likes of Howard Stern and Jennifer Aniston, and starred in a Disney Channel Original Movie, ‘Geek Charming.’ In her latest film role, Hyland tackles a different kind of comedy—that of the dark teen variety—in Brian Dannelly’s (‘Saved!’) ‘Struck By Lightning.’

It doesn’t happen often, but every now and then life spawns two people who are so completely right for each other that they could only be wrong for everyone else. Such is the case of Pat (Bradley Cooper) and Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence) in David O. Russell’s SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. Luckily for us, it is not only the characters that share this special affinity: Cooper and Lawrence are perfectly-balanced counterparts in this dark-yet-oddly-uplifting dramedy.
The most epic love stories often demand that characters pay a price for love. This is particularly true for many female characters set in times past, who would lose children, social standing, and economic security upon choosing love over duty. Many who discuss Leo Tolstoy‘s famed novel Anna Karenina focus on the infamous and
