As the film opens on an Oklahoma farm during the depression, two simultaneous visitors literally hit the Wagoneer home: a ruinous dust storm and a convertible crazily driven by Red, the missus' brother. A roguish country-western musician, he has just been invited to audition for the Grand Ole Opry, his chance of a lifetime to become a success. However, this is way back in Nashville, Red clearly drives terribly, and he's broke and sick with tuberculosis to boot. Whit, 14, seeing his own chance of a lifetime to avoid "growing up to be a cotton picker all my life," begs Ma to let him go with Uncle Red as driver and protege. Thus begins a picaresque journey both hilarious and poignant. Written by

Ryman Auditorium is used as the setting for the Opry. This venue was not used until the 1940s, and the movie takes place in the 1930s. See more »

"Honkytonk Man" is one of the best performances of Eastwood.
We consider "Honkytonk Man" as a minor film and Eastwood's personal, however, and suggest the outlines of a great film director who knows what kind of movie you want and interests you do. Throughout the film it is clear, not only by history tells us, but because the narrative used as Eastwood goes to the models of the great classics, the film may get an irregular, but by no means devoid of interest, and we anticipate the Eastwood of future masterpieces.
"Honkytonk Man" is a bitter and deeply sad film, falls somewhat in the typical pattern of "road movies" with an uneven script, but with good hits for not being slighted, and some decent performances, which make it advisable, see this film.
Probably the most atypical film by Clint Eastwood, away completely from the picture we had used. This unusual road movie tells the decline of a man desperately seeking one last chance to give meaning to their lives.
The film does not impose any moral message, is limited to displaying your images through the portrait of a harsh society, a film chaired by unhappiness and pessimism. Another example of the talent that long before this film and Eastwood had recently was recognized.
As an actor, Clint produced one of his best works.
