Country Strong?

Lughnasa                                        Waxing Harvest Moon

Just watched Country Strong.  I wouldn’t savage it like the critics on Rotten Tomato, but I wouldn’t put it in a list of art house classics either.  I liked the performances of Garret Hedlund and Tim McGraw though I didn’t like Tim McGraw as much as the critics did.  Gwenyth Paltrow gave a gutsy, but melodramatic presentation of the failing country diva.

The fragile country super star burdened the movie with a huge cliche and the drag on the plot kept it close to the ground.

Missable, but also watchable.
