Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence Dance in Silver Linings Playbook (Video)

11/13/2012 at 03:45 PM EST

With impressive performances from Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook may already be an Oscar contender before it even hits theaters.

For Pat (played by Cooper), a former teacher who has just been released from a mental hospital, things get interesting when he gets involved with Tiffany (played by Lawrence), a neighborhood girl with problems of her own.

But with Danny (Chris Tucker) leading the way, Tiffany and Pat unwind as they learn to dance to Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing."

The film has been earning praise since it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

"They're amazing together, with Lawrence showing incredible range and comic timing in her award-worthy performance," PEOPLE's movie critic Alynda Wheat wrote at the time.

Silver Linings Playbook opens in theaters Wednesday, Nov. 21.
