Tender Mercies, aka Crazy Heart Part 1

Somebody told my boyfriend he sounded like Tender Mercies. He had heard of this movie, I had not. We Netflixed it.

This movie is fantastic, absolutely gorgeous. And Crazy Heart totally copied it, but not as well. There are fewer cheesy, obvious plot twists in this one than in Crazy Heart and it is more of a mood piece than a dramatic heartbreaker. It reminded me of Badlands in that way. Or maybe it was all the shots of the wide open prairie.

If someone created a fall collection based on the colors in this movie, it would be so beautiful. Also, it's too bad Ellen Barkin got all that plastic surgery. She is gorgeous in this movie, and her clothes are incredible.
