  • Critic Reviews
    "COUNTRY STRONG is a throwback, a pure, heartfelt exercise in '50s social melodrama....It was shot in a straightforward meat-and-potatoes style, beautifully filmed by John Bailey."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "COUNTRY STRONG is a charmer....Hedlund's very casual, almost offhand, in front of a camera."
    Box Office

    "The film works best when the music takes over. Its star sings well and looks lovely..."
    Wall Street Journal

    "COUNTRY STRONG rides pretty high in the saddle, confident in the remarkably realized world Feste has created for her characters."

    "[R]endered with considerable empathy and emotional complexity....Buoyed by an expectedly fine soundtrack and obvious heartland appeal..."

    "The corners of this straight-ahead melodrama's love rectangle are briskly drawn out by writer/director Shana Feste....The most affecting scenes in COUNTRY STRONG sublimate passion and filter relationships through song."
    Sight and Sound

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Writer/director Shana Feste does a respectable job of shaping the characters....[Hedlund] brings sizzle and soul to the mic."
