Tender Mercies

Tender Mercies is a 1982 film that chronicles the redemption of a strung out country singer in Texas. There's an awkwardness that slowly is revealed as a quiet dignity in this film, as the landscape, a love story, and the past lives on the characters all collide. It's worth a watch if you don't mind something that slows down the world and zooms its lens in on a few lives that seek wholeness.
