Country Strong

Let’s talk about the movie Country Strong.  In the movie, Gwyneth Paltrow plays a huge country artist that is at the top of her game till her world takes a turn for the worse with several events that changes her course in life.  She is getting out of rehab and her relationship with her husband/manager and the music world is not the same.  Her husband, played by the real country artist, Tim McGraw, is falling out of love with Gwyneth’s character, Kelly.  As we watch the movie unfold, you want to root for them to get back together but the storyline isn’t that strong to support it and you have a feeling that it’s not going to end happily.  This movie shows off some other musical talent not just by Paltrow but by the other two co-stars, played by Garrett Hedlund and Leighton Meester.   There is a twist to the movie – one that I don’t think really fits and the ending just left me blah.  But if you’re looking for something that isn’t a rerun - it’s watchable enough.
