Tender Mercies

Oscars went to the screenplay from Horton Foote ("The Trip to Bountiful") and star Robert Duvall for this soulful, absorbing drama about a down-and-out former country music star who recovers from alcoholism and begins piecing his broken life back together with the help of a devout, sweetly loving single mother (Tess Harper) at a remote Texas gas station. Wilford Brimley, Betty Buckley, Ellen Barkin and Paul Gleason costar in this classic from filmmaker Bruce Beresford ("Driving Miss Daisy").
