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

I too thought this movie was a very good product considering it was Mellancamps acting and directorial debut! One thing I thought interesting that no one has commented on was John's inclusion of people close to him. Toby Meyers, one guitarist from his band, played the part of Luke. Larry Crane, another guitarist from John's earlier days, played the part of Ramey. I thought Larry appeared much more comfortable and natural in front of the camera that John did.
Also, one point I am not sure of was the woman who played John's grandmother, their interaction seemed very natural so I assumed she was his real grandmother!
