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.

Chet’s Rating: 4 out 5 stars
