“Iu0026#39;m not really a country music fan at all but I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Itu0026#39;s a superb character driven film that goes way beyond any musical persuasion. The performances are remarkable and I can see why they had to release this for awards consideration. Tim McGraw was shockingly good (he can really act!)and Gwyneth Paltrow delivers a better performance than Jeff Bridges did in his Oscar win of a year ago. (Donu0026#39;t get me wrong, Bridges was great but Gwyneth really brought it in this role) In fact, this film tops u0026quot;Crazy Heartu0026quot; by quite a large margin. You really care about these characters and events of the film really throw you because itu0026#39;s anything but predictable.”
