I'm glad that I don't listen to the critics.
I liked Country Strong and enjoyed listening to all the songs. The performances were amazing, especially those of the younger stars, Garrett Hedlund and Leighton Meester. I was disappointed that Tim McGraw, the only real country music singer in the film, did not sing a single note.
The storyline resembled that of many other movies depicting successful artists who struggle with addictions and the ensuing relationship problems. Gwyneth Paltrow plays the role of a six-time Grammy winner who has a drinking problem and leaves the rehab facility a few months too early. The story starts off as a love triangle and gradually evolves into a love rectangle involving the four main characters.
The ending is unique.
Watch the trailer.
