Crazy Heart opens in theaters this week. Distributor Fox Searchlight was going to premiere the movie next year, but Jeff Bridges' performance has been getting such good reviews that they decided to move the release to this year in an attempt to win Bridges the Oscar he's always deserved.
In Crazy Heart, Bridges plays Bad Blake, a broken-down, hard-living country music singer who's had way too many marriages, far too many years on the road and one too many drinks way too many times. And yet, Bad can’t help but reach for salvation with the help of Jean (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a journalist who discovers the real man behind the musician.
Check out the trailer below to catch a glimpse of Bridges' much talked-about performance!
