Bad Blake (Jeff Bridges) is a broken-down, hard-living country music singer who's had way too many marriages, far too many years on the road and one too many drinks way too many times. And yet, Bad can't help but reach for salvation with the help of Jean (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a journalist who discovers the real man behind the musician. As he struggles down the road of redemption, Bad learns the hard way just how tough life can be on one man's crazy heart.
Based on the novel of the same name by Thomas Cobb.
good movie - Maggie a bit young for Jeff but we all know young women like older musicians
Well-acted movie. Jeff's love interest way too young. Movie was too-too long.
Great movie! Nice subtle story about an aging alcoholic musician trying to get back on the right track. I'd buy the DVD for sure if they bothered to put any decent features. Hopefully a special edition comes out later. Anyway, 5 stars, 2 thumbs up!
