Audience Reviews for Blue Sky

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

Julie B

Super Reviewer


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.

Randy Tippy

Super Reviewer

Jones is just as good as Lange. Worthwhile for their performances alone.
