From Bruce Beresford, the acclaimed director of Breaker Morant, Crimes of the Heart and Driving Miss Daisy, and Horton Foote, the legendary writer of To Kill a Mockingbird, Baby the Rain Must Fall and The Trip to Bountiful,comes this classic drama starring screen great Robert Duvall (The Apostle, True Confessions) in his once-in-a-lifetime Oscar-winning Best Actor performance. Mac Sledge (Duvall) is an alcoholic drifter who comes into the life of a lonely widow (Tess Harper, Silkwood) and her young son in the barren flatlands of Texas. But when Mac is revealed to be a once-famous country singer, he must confront a painful past that includes his bitter superstar ex-wife (Betty Buckley, Frantic) and troubled daughter (Ellen Barkin, The Big Easy) while facing an uncertain future that may only be redeemed by the simple power of love. Tender Mercies also won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay (Foote) and was nominated for three more Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director (Beresford). With a stellar supporting cast that includes Wilford Brimley (Country), Lenny von Dohlen (Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me) and Paul Gleason (The Breakfast Club), Tender Mercies is a movie experience of uncommon grace and dignity.
