Rock singer John Mellencamp makes his screen and directorial debut in this story by "Lonesome Dove" author, Larry McMurtry. The story, not too separated from Mellencamp's real life, finds him as a country music star whose meanderings and philandering has thrown his life into turmoil. Returning to his native Indiana to try to reestablish a normal life. Instead he takes up with an old lover (Lenz), ignoring his loving wife (Hemingway), and duplicating the lifestyle of his womanizing father (Akins). Written by

This is more than a "hidden gem", this is The Most Under-Rated Movie Ever Made. In fact, it's a perfect film. The story is deep. The acting is real. Real accents, too! The scenes are authentic. There is drama and violence and you can't predict what's going to happen. The star/director does not portray himself as a brilliant misunderstood genius, and instead drags us step by step through a magnificent meltdown. A real fall from grace. There is nothing wrong with this movie. It cannot be improved upon. It is a movie that will touch the heart of anyone who has watched someone self-destruct, or has experienced self-destructive episodes. In short, this is a movie for all young men or anyone who knows one. I do not give 10/10 to many films (just 32 films out of the 4797 I have rated) but this one deserves it. It's a great movie! It's The Most Under-Rated Movie Ever Made.
