Jeff Bridges has been around for quite sometime now. He ahs already had 4 Oscar nominations but still no cigar. He is really overdue. His work in movies like The Contender, Starman and Thunderbolt and Lightfoot speaks volumes of his undying talent. He has really sun down a bit in the last couple of years. He might get his resurrection blues with Crazy Heart
Jeff Bridges will be playing a really luscious character: A country singer with no where to go and totally broke reaching the last straws of his life. Bad Blake is a broken down, hard living country music singer who has had way too many marriages, spend loads of time on the road and a little too much drink. He has nothing really to regret but himself for all this.
Now Bad meets up with a journalist played by Maggie Gyllenhaal who discovers the real man behind the musician. A man struggling to come to terms with his life. Is there any redemption for him? We will have to watch this space for that. The music on this trailer is just something special. Here is the trailer
The film also stars one of my favorite actors Colin Farrell in a supporting role. The film is directed by Scott Cooper. Scottâ€™s debut effort has been compared to movies like Once and Wrestler. This is really a tall order which I hope it wonâ€™t miss.
