The Remix summer must-see movie: Joy

The summer holidays are the perfect time to kick back and relax with a ginormous box of popcorn, a frozen coke (or a glass of vino if you’re that way inclined), and go watch a movie on the big screen. Even though the hype is all about Star Wars this week, next week it’s all going to be about Joy. We went along to a media preview of the new film last night so can tell you first hand that this one is worth a watch. Starring the fantastic and babein’ Jennifer Lawrence, once again alongside our faves Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, Joy is our summer-must see flick. The story focuses on J-Law’s character, Joy, who is a strong and capable businesswoman and matriarch of her large and crazy family. The film, based on a true story, shows Joy rising through her life struggles to become the head of a powerful family business. It’s written and directed by David O Russell, so if you enjoyed Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle (and let’s face it, they were incredible), you’re going to LOVE this. We're giving away five double passes to Joy over on our Instagram - head here to enter. Joy opens in cinemas nationwide on December 26th.
