Insufferable, Sanctimonious Privileged Goop Lady to Play Down-Home Country Singer

Here’s the trailer for Country Strong, a title so cheesy I nearly cringed my jaw off writing it. It looks like the big studio version of Crazy Heart (which was already a fairly formulaic film). It also looks like it could be decent Hollywood inspirational guilty pleasure hokum if it had someone like Sandra Bullock or Reese Witherspoon in the lead role. But, Gwyneth? Come the fuck on? As the down-on-her-luck country singer dealing with addiction and the up-and-comer (Leighton Meester) nipping at her heels? What is she addicted to? Can you go to rehab for an addiction to Pinot and bottled water?

I don’t know who did the casting for this film, but whoever it is fucked up. She should have her CSA membership revoked.

Here’s the trailer.
