Crazy Heart 2009

Crazy Heart is an upcoming 2009 American musical-drama film, written and directed by Scott Cooper and based on the novel by Thomas Cobb. It stars Jeff Bridges as an alcoholic country music singer, who falls for a younger journalist (Maggie Gyllenhaal) in the midst of a slump in his songwriting career, and the turnaround in his life that comes from it. The film was purchased for distribution by Fox Searchlight Pictures, and is slated for a U.S. limited release on December 16, 2009.

Plot: Bad Blake (Jeff Bridges) is an emotionally-crippled, alcoholic country music singer, with one too many failed marriages under his belt. Enter Jean Craddock (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a young journalist who begins to see the man behind the musician and helps Bad get his life back on track. In doing so, Bad also becomes the mentor to a contemporary country star, Tommy Sweet (Colin Farrell), while simultaneously struggling in the rising young crooner’s shadow.
