Country Strong (2010)

Cinemagic Grand with Susan on 2/9/11
This was a lot heavier than I was expecting. The trailers and promo campaign make it out to be a story of redemption, but it's clear pretty early on that it's a story of attempted redemption that doesn't quite succeed. Gwyneth Paltrow is fantastic and I was surprised that I didn't hate Leighton Meester. She successfully avoided the All About Eve vibe. A good movie, well worth seeing, but will not leave you in a good mood.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars

New Movies in Year Three: 1
