I'm not a country music fan, nor really a Gwyneth Paltrow fan and most of the reviews about this flick were not good.
Yet this snow put me in a movie mode and I went. Within 5 minutes, I knew I would like this movie.
Great music, lots of singing (including Paltrow) plus 2 supporting actors Garrett Hedlund (who carried this film) and Leighton Meester.
A hard luck, back on your heels stories followed most of the characters just like most country music songs and was just a good story with characters you rooted for and against.
Still the ending was even shocking for me (I was blindsided).
I don't know what the critics where thinking about ...I was highly entertained and definitely recommend seeing.
