The Making of ‘Crazy Heart’

The film is based on the songwriter’s own experiences and was shot in locations around Missouri.
It’s been said that “Crazy Heart” is one of the most accurately written films about rural America that has ever been made. Cooper spent a lot of time talking to people in Missouri about their lives and their music. He also used music from local bands during filming to help create the authentic feel of the movie.
‘Out of the Furnace’
The 2013 film “Out of the Furnace” was directed by Scott Cooper and tells the story of two brothers, Russel and Rodney. The brothers are estranged until Russel is arrested and sent to prison, where Rodney visits him and they rebuild their relationship. When Russel is released, he’s determined to make things right with his brother, but finds that life has changed and Rodney has moved on.
The film stars Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, and Woody Harrelson. “Out of the Furnace” was well-received by critics, with a 74% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The consensus reads: “Strong performances from Christian Bale and Casey Affleck make “Out of the Furnace” an intense and rewarding watch, despite its predictability.”

In 1892, a wagon train of settlers traveling through the Great American Desert was attacked by Native Americans.
