The Thing Called Love
PG-13 1993 | 115 mins | Romance
In Nashville, there are 10,000 singer-songwriters chasing success...with one chance in a million of getting it. For Miranda "no relation to Elvis" Presley, that's one chance worth taking. Fresh from New York City, Miranda befriends three fellow hopefuls: shy Connecticut cowboy Kyle Davidson; Southern belle Linda Lue Linden; and James Wright, a cocky Texan with brooding good looks and a honeyed voice. Together they begin a rocky ride down Music City's well-worn highway, finding hope, heartbreak, happiness...and The Thing Called Love. Acclaimed director Peter Bogdanovich presents a dynamic, music-filled film that features Phoenix in one of his final roles (and his only singing one), as well as a showy part for Bullock, who would rocket to stardom the following year in Speed.
