Trailer: "The Good Heart"

MySpace has the exclusive red-band trailer for Magnolia Pictures' upcoming The Good Heart (4.30, On Demand 4.2), starring Brian Cox and Paul Dano.

The film tells the story of a curmudgeonly bartender with a bad heart who takes in a homeless, suicidal young man, and gives him a new lease on life by training him to be his successor. The highlight of the film is without a doubt Brian Cox's performance, and is worth seeing for him alone. I enjoyed the rest of the film until the end, which is pretty terrible and almost ruined the film for me. Still, Cox is excellent and until the obvious and cloying conclusion, the film is pretty strong.

Check out the trailer, featuring lots of Brian Cox's Gran Torino-esque profanity, here:
