This muddled cinematic ballad to American country music concerns a naïve, guitar-toting farm boy who leaves home to seek his musical fortune in Nashville.

Overall the charm of the film works its spell, and director Kennedy shows confidence in juggling understated comedy and gently sentimental drama.

Claims to run 95 minutes but feels more like 25 to life.

Warmly affirmative and watchable.

Audience Reviews for Doing Time for Patsy Cline

It's a fun but somewhat uneven romp, enlivened by its unusual setting and lovely female lead, Miranda Otto.
