"Joy" a drama of invention

Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper star in this strange odyssey loosely based on some of the events in the life of Joy Mangano. A lot is fictionalized.

Jeanne and I are both exploring the concepts of creativity so that we can learn to better better creators and better artists.

This film is a hard look at how life can devour our hopes and dreams and how one woman fought to make hers a reality. 

At a critical point, Trudy (Isabella Rossellini) asks Joy (Jennifer Lawrence) her husbands 4 questions that determine if you're a good financial risk.
1. Where did you go to High School
2. Who were you in High School
3. Are you prepared within 6 months of commencing  this venture to show adequate returns
4. You are in a room and there is a gun on the table, and the only other person in the room is an adversary in commerce. Only one of you can prevail, Yet, you have protected your business and Morris's money. Do you pick up the gun, Joy?

I found this to be a very good drama that fills my need for inspiration to do more and be more creative.
