Crazy Heart
2010
When reporter Jean Craddock (Oscar nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal) interviews Bad Blake (Oscar winner Jeff Bridges) -- an alcoholic, seen-better-days country music legend -- they connect, and the hard-living crooner sees a possible saving grace in a life with Jean and her young son. But can he leave behind an existence playing in the shadow of Tommy (Colin Farrell), the upstart kid he once mentored? Robert Duvall produces and co-stars.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Without Jeff Bridges's magnificent performance, this would be a so-so drama with some good old-fashioned country songs and pretty shots of the southwestern landscape. Bridges elevates it into something very affecting. He earns its pathos.
