Watch Tender Mercies

"Robert Duvall is Mac Sledge, down and out country singer. His struggle for fame was over. His fight for respect was just beginning."
Add to Watchlist

The life of Mac Sledge, a recovering alcoholic country and western singer, is examined in this dramatic film. After awakening in a roadside motel in Texas after another night of binge drinking, Mac is challenged by motel owner Rosa to stop drinking and begin working at her establishment. He and Rosa fall in love, marry, and become faithful church goers. But Rosa suspects that Mac may be falling into his old patterns when a newspaper reporter uncovers his musical past and Mac is reunited with his country music star ex-wife. His reunion with the daughter he abandoned, however, is short-lived.
