Crazy Heart (2009)

Written By Awir Aditya on Monday, March 15, 2010 | 1:43 AM


Genre: Drama/Romance/Musical

Starring: Jeff Bridges, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jack Nation

An alcoholic veteran country singer, Bad Blake (Bridges) has taken the road, performing at various towns and cities. Cigarette's and whisky being his only companion, he befriends and later falls in love with a young Santa Fe journalist, Jean (Gyllenhaal). Bad's friendship extends to Jean's son Buddy (Nation) and the three are all set to become a nice happy family. Bad's affinity for alcohol gets the better of him and circumstances give Bad and Jean a new outlook on how things have happened over the past few months. The story has nothing which makes you want to sit right till the end or wait to see what happens. Its simple and sober, apart from Bad and Jeff Bridges' phenomenal acting makes him a deserving recipient for the Oscar. The country music played in the movie may not be to the liking of all and hence puts the movie on dicey grounds. A good watch but not an entertainer.

Thumbs up: Jeff Bridges
Thumbs down: Slow, music not to everyone's liking

Rating: 7.0/10
