The Man takes a Drink. The Drink takes a Drink. The Drink Takes the Man is a proverb as old as time. Crazy Heart is a moving retelling of this saying.
From NetFlix: "When reporter Jean Craddock (Maggie Gyllenhaal) interviews Bad Blake (Golden Globe winner Jeff Bridges) -- an alcoholic, seen-better-days country music legend -- they connect, and the hard-living crooner sees a possible saving grace in a life with Jean and her young son. But can he leave behind an existence playing in the shadow of Tommy (Colin Farrell), the upstart kid he once mentored?" 2009 115 minutes
