Product Description

It's been 40 years since E.F. Bloodworth (Kris Kristofferson) abandoned his loving wife and sons for a life on the road. Now at the end of the line, Bloodworth reappears, forced to reckon with the stale aftermath of his departure. With his ex-wife Julia (Frances Conroy) mentally destroyed and his three sons, Warren (Val Kilmer), Boyd (Dwight Yoakam) and Brady (W. Earl Brown), soured by years of anger, Bloodworth's only solace is a budding relationship with Fleming, the grandson he never knew. But when Fleming meets Raven (Hilary Duff), the woman of his dreams, will Bloodworth's presence force history to repeat itself? Bloodworth features music produced by Academy Award® winner, T Bone Burnett (Best Original Song, Crazy Heart, 2009), and an original song from country music legend Kris Kristofferson.

Amazon.com

The lush greens of Tennessee frame the Southern Gothic tale of Bloodworth. An aging honky-tonk musician named E.F. Bloodworth (Kris Kristofferson) returns home after decades to the lost and aimless sons he left behind: Warren (Val Kilmer), a smooth-talking womanizer and gadabout; Brady (W. Earl Brown, who also adapted the screenplay from a novel by William Gay), a bitter would-be psychic who looks after their disconnected mother (Frances Conroy); and Boyd (country singer Dwight Yoakam), whose deep subterranean anger drove away his wife, the mother of Fleming (Reece Thompson of Rocket Science), an aspiring writer. There's not much in the way of plot, just a series of colorful episodes that tug and tear at the family's fragile bonds, while Fleming tries to surmount the wasted lives that surround him--but the lived-in performances keep everything on track. This movie is all about the vivid but troubled personalities and the languid yet juicy dialogue. Slowly, old secrets bubble up as human violence and a tornado rip up the fabric of life. The soundtrack, produced by T-Bone Burnett (who produced the soundtrack for O Brother, Where Art Thou?), is superb. Also featuring Hilary Duff as a sort of Southern-fried manic pixie dream girl. --Bret Fetzer

The movie is worth watching not for plot per se but for the character studies drawn by the actors. W. Earl Brown is superb as the adult son left to care for his now deteriorating mother after his father and brothers effectively abandon the family.
Hillary Duff is luminous as the girl who befriends the sensitive grandson,the one character actively trying to rise above the adult male failures of the family.Together the two seventeen year olds strike a note of hope in this swamp of adult anger, self pity, and irresponsibility.If you enjoy watching a movie more for the acting and less for intricacies of plot you will like the movie.
Note: W. Earl Brown also wrote the screenplay for Bloodworth. You may remember him as Dan Dority,Swearingen's henchman in Deadwood.

I thought it was a very good movie. Dwight Yoakam is a very good actor in his own right. Kris Kristofferson can still sing, and act. I would recommend this movie.

This is a tough movie to review. On the good side, the acting is really phenomenal. It gives the top billing to either Kris Kristofferson or Val Kilmer but they're more supporting cast than main characters of this film. The journey really centers on Fleming Bloodworth portrayed aptly by Reece Thompson. Not a spectacular performance, but not one that gets in the way of the story. Hilary Duff plays a captivating role as his love interest. W. Earl Brown (formerly of Deadwood) gives an electric performance in a not-so-nice role. Kilmer manages to wear a cowboy hat and talk in an accent and not remind us of his role of Doc Holiday in Tombstone (which was amazing). Dwight Yoakam continues to amaze me with his ability to give incredible "reality" to his performances. I think he may be one of the most under-rated actors ever (see Slingblade and tell me otherwise!).

This film is, at its core, a coming of age picture. The problem is that it's set amidst a family tragedy that I don't ever feel is solved. When cut deeper, we're left with a lead character who really for no logical reason or reason we can see and experience comes of age and moves on. This is one of those films that will neither uplift you or really evoke all that much emotion from you, so if you're looking for that, look elsewhere. If you're just looking for something to pop on and zone out to, you might not be disappointed.

I love this movie! Not only did it have two of my favorite people staring in it, (Kris Kristofferson & Dwight Yoakam) but because it was film in Appalachia. I loved the scenery. I also love Kristoffersoin song "You don't tell me what to do" He is such a great Songwriter! I hope this one comes out on a CD. He has such a way with words. It's hard to believe he is in his 70's because he sure is doing such a great job in his singing and acting career. Plus he is as handsome as ever!
I was a little disappointed in Dwight's role, only because I wished there was more of him in the movie because he is such a great talent as well.It would have been really neat to hear him sing an Appalachian song as well maybe sitting on his front porch in the movie.
Trust me... go out and buy the Movie. It's worth every penny.

I was first intrigued with this movie because of the all-star cast, but quickly lost interest in this convoluted plot. The first convolusion is using Kris Kristopherson as the leading man. It's not about Kris K's character, it's about his grandson Fleming, a young man who dropped out of high school but who has a passion for writing. Fleming spends most scenes in the beginning writing stories based on his short, dysfunctional life. His grandfather had walked out on his grandmother 40 years ago to make his career in Nashville, leaving the wife to raise three sons. These three sons, Brady, Boyd and Warren (Val Kilmer) are now three disgruntled men who sit around and drink, use women and curse somewhere in the backwoods of the piney woods. Two of the sons seethe with anger and hate over their father. The only son who seems to be the most like the dad is Warren. The abandoned wife sits in the background with a vacuuous stare during most of the entire movie, saying only a few lines to Fleming near the hour mark to fill in the blanks as to why her husband took off on her so many years ago.

Cinematography and scenery are nice (it was filmed in North Carolina), and so is the accompanying music, but the short and varied storyline seems to want to go everywhere too fast. There's a disgruntled postalman, a flirtatious young woman, several mysterious townfolk and lots of old, run-down wooden homes. Everyone isn't just flawed, they are seriously flawed and it's impossible to have any sympathy with any of the characters except for Fleming, who remains the only person who seems to have passion, sympathy and drive to get out of the life he's led sofar.

My uncle loved it! He watched it with many guests. It was wonderful. He loves horses and Chris Christofason. He searched for the movie a long time before finding it on amazon.
