   “Joy” is an inspirational movie for young women starring well-known actress Jennifer Lawrence from “The Hunger Games” franchise and “Silver Linings Playbook.”
The film is based on the real-life story of Joy Mangano, a home-shopping entrepreneur, who created the Miracle Mop.
Filled with funny moments, mostly involving Joy’s strange family, it will also make you reflect on the dreams you had as a child.
“Joy” reminds the audience that no matter how difficult life can get, you have to do whatever you can and make life worth living. Jennifer Lawrence once again shows her amazing acting skills — she embodies Joy Mangano’s determination.
The moral of the film is that no matter what other people think, your dreams are worth achieving.
