Phenomenal movie. Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal bring Oscar worthy performances. I’ll be surprised if I wake up tomorrow and they’re both not nominated (Oscar nominations are tomorrow).
Country has-been Bad Blake (Bridges) has lost his way. The once major-tour headlining Blake is now playing tiny town bowling alleys and hasn’t written a song in years. He needs a kick start to his life and career – which he finds in a local reporter (Gyllenhaal). I won’t tell you what happens, but the chemistry between these two is amazing.
You’ve seen this story before, but not told like this. Go see it.
