In this engaging story from writer-director Scott Cooper, Oscar Winner Jeff Bridges stars as the broken-down, hard-living country music singer Bad Blake who's had way too many marriages, far too many years on the road and one too many drinks way too many times. However, Bad can't help but reach for salvation with the help of Jean, 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. Bad promises nothing to Jean and, as a single mum with plenty of regrets, Jean knows she'd be a fool to believe even in that. Still, they continue winding up in each other's arms. At the age of 57, Bad still lives his life out on the road, playing long-ago hits in third-rate beer joints and bowling alleys to aging crowds as drunk and yearning as he is, while his fleeting fame slides into obscurity. The most he can hope for these days is to open a big concert for his young protege, Tommy Sweet, who learned everything he knows from Bad - except Tommy, unlike Bad, managed to become rich and famous from it.
