Bad Blake (Jeff Bridges) is an emotionally-crippled, alcoholic country music singer, with one too many failed marriages under his belt. Enter Jean Craddock (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a young journalist who begins to see the man behind the musician and helps Bad get his life back on track. In doing so, Bad also becomes the mentor to a contemporary country star, Tommy Sweet (Colin Farrell), while simultaneously struggling in the rising young crooner shadow.
