This review is from: Tender Mercies  (DVD)
My boyfriend wanted us to watch this movie as he is a big fan of Robert Duvall. I didn't think I was going to like it but it won me over.
It is a gentle understated love story. Robert Duvall won a well deserved Acadamey Award for his performance as Mac Sledge, a self destructive alcoholic and country singer who finds a new meaning to life through the love of a good woman, Rosa Lee played with feeling by Tess Harper.
As with all good love stories there are a few complications which makes the plot more interesting.
It made me laugh and cry. Well worth the watch.
