Storyline

Rock singer John Mellencamp makes his screen and directorial debut in this story by "Lonesome Dove" author, Larry McMurtry. The story, not too separated from Mellencamp's real life, finds him as a country music star whose meanderings and philandering has thrown his life into turmoil. Returning to his native Indiana to try to reestablish a normal life. Instead he takes up with an old lover (Lenz), ignoring his loving wife (Hemingway), and duplicating the lifestyle of his womanizing father (Akins). Written by John Sacksteder <Jsack@ka.net>

A good start for Mellencamp
11 January 1999 | by Tito-8See all my reviews

This is a reasonably strong directorial debut for rocker Mellencamp, who also gives a good lead performance. In fact, the whole cast is quite effective, and the story moves along at an appropriate pace. Personally, I found the final scenes to be rather weak compared to the rest of the film, but even with the poor ending, I still found this to be a solid effort and a generally good movie.
