Crazy Heart

That's the title of the latest DVD selection that arrived in this little corner of heaven from our friends at Netflix.

Jeff Bridges earned an Oscar for his leading role as a washed-up musician in search of redemption. (And, he actually deserved the award, unlike other recent winners.)

He is supported by other big names like Maggie Gyllenhaal, Colin Farrell, and Robert Duvall.

Warning, this film will take ye socks down the dark descent to "rock bottom" that an alcoholic must find before aforementioned redemption may be found.

It is very "real" in that regard.

It is even more "real" in that the redemption Bridges' character thought he would find is not at all what he had envisioned.

Bottom line: probably not the best choice for family movie night, but worth the journey.
