Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It is a guileless tribute not only to plain values of plain people in Depression America, but also to the sweet spirit of country-and-western music before it got all duded up for the urban cowboys.
Fresh: Eastwood took great pains in telling this story of an aging, struggling country singer...
Fresh: This is a sweet, whimsical, low-key movie, a movie that makes you feel good without pressing you too hard.
Fresh: The whole thing veers wildly in quality, and no Eastwood-hater should go within a mile of it; but few lovers of American cinema could fail to be moved by a venture conceived so recklessly against the spirit of its times.
The greatest Eastwood film ever!
I would have to say that this one is probably the greatest film that Clint Eastwood has ever done! Absolutely wonderful film!
