Intriguing yet predictable and way too long; "This World Won't Break" tests your attention span and leaves you feeling drained.
In this drama, a broke-down middle aged Texas troubadour yearns to be remembered like the southern bluesmen before him, but his failings and self-doubt forestall his musical dreams.
A part of me is conflicted because "This World Won't Break" has a beautiful story surrounding it but it's muddled by a few moments of melodrama, as well as being 45 minutes too long. Another positive point about this indie is the soundtrack; it's bluesy, country and a highlight of the film. The performances are decent as well. Overall, worth a watch to take a break from worse films out there, but it will acquire some patience to get through.
