Gwyneth Paltrow stars as a washed-up, alcoholic country singer. And no, this is a totally different film to Jeff Bridges' Crazy Heart.

Keep an open mindBy a customer , 22 May 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]When I saw this I was very aware that it had had its fair share of bad reviews. However after seeing it I would encourage everyone to watch it with an open mind and I think you'll find it very enjoyable.
I thought it was a very sweet yet heartbreaking story and I loved everybodies perfomance in it. I love Gwyneth Paltrow and I really hope Leighton Meester does a lot more movies because I think she's great!
I really liked the music too, my favourites being Give In To Me and Summer Girl.
It's not everyone type of film, but I would recommend you see it despite what critics say.

Something missingBy a customer , 11 Jun 2013It took along time to get going and it was like so many of these films, Paltrow gave a good performance but it didn't thrill me like I thought it would.

Even if country is not your style, it is a good film,beware it's a bit of a weepie..By bigbang (27 reviews) , 18 May 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]Much better than expected! Country is not my favourite music but Paltrow is always excellent in every role,, no exception in that one and makes good choices in the films she plays in. Even made me reach for the tissues towards the end. American films are good at pulling your heart strings.... The whole cast was good. too. I;m glad i ignored the general critics!
