Actor Jeff Bridges won the Best Actor’s award in both the Oscar’s and the Golden Globe for his role in this film as Bad Blake, a faded country music legend who has had way too many marriages, far too many years on the road and one too many drinks way too many times. Bad has a grown son he has not seen for years and whose whereabouts he has no clue of. He tours from one backwater town to another playing his old hits in run-down joints, drifting further and further from his big comeback dream. All seems to be on the downhill slide for Bad, but when a young journalist enters his life things begin to change.
