Mini Review - Crazy Heart

Crazy Heart (out Feb 18) is the story of an alcoholic country 'n' western singer (Jeff Bridges) trying to revive his sagging career. A young woman (Maggie Gyllenhaal) then enters his life, offering a chance at a fresh start. With a brilliant performance by Jeff Bridges, this is a beautifully told drama with a superb soundtrack. Will be one of the year's best. Grade: A.
