CRAFTY CINEMA: Country Strong-inspired Cowboy Hat

Friday, January 7, 2011

Country Strong is a frothy soap opera of a tale – complete with the glitz and glamour of the country music stage. Gwyneth Paltrow stars as a superstar artist on the decline, wrestling with her demons in between gigs. Even with a supportive husband (Tim McGraw) and a dedicated songwriter (Garrett Hedlund) nearby, her struggles may be too big to conquer. Not to mention that hot on her heels for the musical throne is younger, spicier version of herself, played by Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester. While critical reviews haven’t been exactly glowing, both leading ladies deserve major kudos for belting out the ballads. This is a film for anyone who loves music-themed dramas set to cowboy boots. This will be a fun addition to country movie night, alongside Urban Cowboy, Coal Miner’s Daughter, Walk the Line and Crazy Heart.
