Bad Blake (brilliantly played by Jeff Bridges) only knows how to live one way: out on the road, playing tough guy country music in cheap bars in nowhere towns in America's south and west. He's always drunk on stage, and the band hired for the night usually know his songs better than he does. Then Blake gets a chance to change his life, with a help of a kind, much younger woman. Bridges' gruff performance (for which he won the Best Actor Oscar in 2010) makes sure this is moving without ever being slushy, and that's a rare thing.
