Movie Info

Blue Sky was the last film directed by Tony Richardson (Tom Jones) before his death in 1991 and one of the last releases from once-thriving Orion Films, whose bankruptcy kept the picture on the shelf for several years. It also features two career-high performances by Tommy Lee Jones and Jessica Lange, who won the Best Actress Oscar for this role, as Hank and Carly Marshall, a military couple whose marriage unravels under the pressure of his job and her mental instability. Hank is an Army captain

Jones and Lange at their best.

Persuasively alive... The movie is sufficiently at odds with itself to be both frustrating and intriguing.

There are two reasons to see this preposterously plotted military-marital melodrama: Jessica Lange's Oscar-winning performance and the fact that it became Brit Tony Richrdson's very last work.

Lange and Jones are an electrifying couple

Even without that lumpy subplot, Blue Sky is wildly uneven and is virtually held together most of the way by the performances of its stars.

Audience Reviews for Blue Sky

Strong performances in a so-so movie. A little issue-movie-of-the-week-ish.

A loosely structured story that is held together by the gravity of Jessica Lange's inspiring performance. A jumble of adultery, deceit and mental illness made worse by it's obtrusive anti-nuclear agenda.

A sleeper that most people did not catch in 1994. This is the best character that I have seen Jessica Lange do including her earlier depiction of Frances Farmer.
