The first trailer for Jeff Bridges led drama “Crazy Heart,” has arrived online.
“Crazy Heart” plot: 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. Gyllenhaal is being campaigned in the lead actress category, though it’s likely Bridges (and the film’s original music by T-Bone Burnett) are the film’s more reasonable shots at Oscar contention. Bridges has even been catapulted to most prognosticator’s winner predictions.
Adapted from a book written by Thomas Cobb, the film is both written and directed by actor/filmmaker Scott Cooper and is making his directorial debut with this film. Also stars Robert Duvall and Colin Farrell.
Fox Searchlight will be bringing “Crazy Heart” to limited theaters starting on December 16th. 2009.
