Crazy Heart Looks Like The Wrestler Meets Anvil

By

Middle-aged man redemption is so huge right now! Fox Searchlight has released the trailer for Crazy Heart starring Jeff Bridges as a broken-down old piece of meat 57-year-old fading country singer, and Maggie Gyllenhaal as the young journalist who gets more than she bargains for when she interviews him. And from the trailer, unless they all die in the end, everything turns out great for everyone. This seems like one of those movies that exists solely to garner an Oscar nomination (but not a win) for one of its stars. The movie might have unexpected moments, but the trailer is familiar near the point of parody.
