Country Strong


One of my new favorite movies from this past year has been Country Strong. If you're a sucker for a love story then you'll be pulled into the relationship between the two aspiring country song-writers, Beau Hutton (Garrett Hedlund) & Chiles Stanton (Leighton Meester). Even if, like me, you aren't a big country music fan, you will enjoy the duets between the characters throughout the movie. The film also realistically documents the struggle of substance abuse addiction through the ups and downs of the lead fallen star character, Kelly Canter, played by Gwyneth Paltrow. If you've ever known a friend or family member to battle drug & alcohol addiction then you will identify with the obstacles presented to all of the surrounding characters as they try to help Kelly re-establish her career. Below are items that were pulled with Leighton Meester's character in mind; particularly the star stud earrings which are similar those given to her by Beau in the film.
