Rant

I watched Crazy Heart last night and here’s the thing.  Did the casting director have to pair Jeff Bridges with an actress who could pass for his friggin daughter?  Yuck.   Is there not one  actress even ten years his junior (if she MUST be younger) in all of Hollywood  to fill this role?  He’s older than I am  for crying out loud.  I just checked.

And here’s the other thing.  Has anyone mentioned the equally serious  love/sex addiction of the character played by Maggie Gyllenhaal?  Did she make it into recovery too?  What’s her story.   Or did she simply meet a “really great guy” and everything got all better.  NOT.

Geez.   I thought I would be seeing a  serious film about recovery.  What a disappointment.
