I went to see Crazy Heart yesterday.

I went to see Crazy Heart yesterday. It's about a down on his luck former country star (Jeff Bridges) who has one last shot at success and happiness (by writing songs for his protege and "getting on" with a girl). The singer reminded me of how I see a Kris Kristoferson or Johnny Cash type singer because he's a hard drinking, "true country" type, even if he's nearly broke and having to play bowling alleys and small pubs to make ends meet.

It reminded me of The Wrestler from last year, because he really isn't looking after himself and needs to reconnect to people, but I think Jeff Bridges will still win the Oscar for Best Actor. The impression I get is that he's due anyway.
