Mississippi Grind ★★★★

Considering I'm a big Ryan Reynolds fan it should be of no surprise that I loved this one. Just a classic buddy/road trip drama with two broken leads who put it all on the line for a chance at some sort of redemption for their past mistakes and misgivings. But as we see one character take a turn towards good and doing right by someone else, we see the other character falter under the pressure and head down a path more familiar. It's a little a heartbreaking, a lot of bluesy goodness and just a solid film all around with great turns by both lead actors. I highly recommend it.
