Springsteen's 'Western Stars,' the movie, is here! Catch up on coverage, reviews and video
Plenty of people got to experience Bruce Springsteen's "Western Stars" early this week, thanks to advance screenings hosted by Fathom Events -- and, in Freehold, by Bruce himself, who showed up to offer a personal introduction. (Let's face it, the man is everywhere.) But as of Friday, the film is screening in multiplexes and film houses all over, and the buzz is, well, buzzing -- in no small part to Springsteen's own promotion efforts.
Here's a rundown of some of the most noteworthy coverage, reviews and video interviews -- more to come as they roll in! Meanwhile, let us know your thoughts on "Western Stars" in the comments.
