Four—time Academy Award® nominee JEFF BRIDGES stars as the richly comic, semi—tragic romantic anti—hero Bad Blake in the debut feature film CRAZY HEART from writer—director Scott Cooper. Bad Blake is 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 (Golden Globe® Nominee MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL), a journalist who discovers the real man behind the musician. As he struggles down the road of redemption, Bad learns the hard way just how tough life can be on one man’s crazy heart.

When a movie offers you a couple of hours with a drunk, he better be a charmer. And even then, it's a gamble; we've all known charming drunks, but a little can go a long way. Fortunately for Crazy Heart, it has Jeff Bridges, who brings enough charm and veJonathan F. Richards, Film.com, 06.24.2010
The movie belongs entirely to Bridges, who won the Golden Globe for best actor in a drama. His inimitable Jeff-isms have never been more endearing - the sloppy gait, the whiskey glass balanced on his chest, his general air of discombobulation.Rafer Guzman, Newsday, 10.31.2011
This performance reminds us that Bridges is that rare actor who has never had to make that apology. Crazy Heart lets him be every bit as grand as we'd hope him to be.Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, 07.07.2010
It's a bit too easy, a bit too familiar, and maybe even a bit too much fun. But the easy magic Bridges brings to the screen makes it all work.Tom Long, Detroit News, 06.24.2010
