‘Country Strong’ Movie Review

One of Taste of Country’s writers had the opportunity to  watch an advanced preview showing of ‘Country Strong’ and we wanted to share his review with our Kicker listeners.

Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow proves credible as a country singer and Nashville star Tim McGraw cements his reputation as an actor capable of nuance and charisma throughout the new film ‘Country Strong,’ which opens nationwide this weekend.

The film explores the intersection of four flawed characters, each at an important crossroads in both their romantic and professional lives. Paltrow stars as a disgraced country music superstar pulled out of rehab prematurely by her husband/manager (McGraw) in order to mount a comeback tour, the sudden urgency of which is never fully explained.

It soon becomes very clear that the couple hasn’t properly dealt with the tragic event that sent her into rehab. To make things worse, each has also brought along new baggage and potential romantic entanglements, in the form of up-and -coming young country singers played by Garret Hedlund and Leighton Meester.
