Tender Mercies, DVD  DVD


Bruce Beresford's emotional drama features an Oscar-winning performance by Robert Duvall.

When washed-up country singer Mac Sledge (Duvall) wakes up in a Texas motel with a hangover, he has reached the end of the line.

With no money and nowhere else to go, he takes a job at the motel run by Rosa Lee (Tess Harper), a kind-hearted widow whose compassion allows Mac to change his ways and turn his life around.

After getting married to Rosa, Mac is offered a once-in-a-lifetime chance to make a comeback with his music, but when he meets up with his own disaffected daughter (Ellen Barkin), Mac decides that he can't ruin someone's life ever again, and turns the offer down in order to stay with his new family.
