“Listen to me, I’ll tell you what’s going to come of you. you are going to grow up and be a strong, smart young woman…” and so begins the latest TV spot and trailer for the upcoming Joy. Based on the true story of Joy Mangano, the film stars Jennifer Lawrence as the single mother of three children, as she builds her empire after creating the Miracle Mop and becoming the president of Ingenious Designs, LLC.
Directed by David O’ Russell, the film also stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. Attending a Q&A after a screening this past weekend, Lawrence said, the film was a tribute to “women who are the unsung heroes of their households.”
