The outlaw country movement of the ’70s and ’80s spawned many music legends—Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Waylon Jennings spring to mind—but Blaze Foley likely isn’t the first songwriter you’d assign this status to. However, since his tragic death in 1989, the legend of Blaze has grown almost as big as the man himself. Four times Academy Award Nominee Ethan Hawke brings this the enigmatic musical tale of outlaw country singer Blaze Foley to the big screen in a most affecting way.
