But the resulting film is scattershot, always skirting the surface, never digging deep enough, runnning through events as if it was a TV movie racing ahead to the next commercial break.
"Sweet Dreams" doesn't draw you in the way, say, "Coal Miner's Daughter" (the story of Loretta Lynn) did, but it does entertain.
Lange and Harris, dangerously well-matched, give us lovers whom only success could sunder.
Clearly the coal miner's daughter's cousin by both birthright and ambition, Sweet Dreams upholds the family honor quite well.
The two main performances are excellent: Lange plays the singer without a hint of condescension to her dreams of 'a big house with yellow roses', while Harris is persuasively menacing, with an inventively foul mouth.
Miss Lange makes herself a perfect physical extension of the vibrant, changeable, enormously expressive woman who can be heard on these recordings.
Director Karel Reisz and screenwriter Robert Getchell create a tightly woven drama with two strong main characters and a number of fine supporting roles, and the love story at the film's center is convincing.
Patsy Cline musical bio hits true notes
Beautifully celebrates the spirit of country singer Patsy Cline.
Jessica Lange plays Cline and gives her friskiest, most intriguing performance to date.
Lange's performance as tragic country crooner Cline, whose life was brought to a premature end by an unfortunate meeting of her plane and a mountain, is the main reason to watch this lively biopic.
There isn't the sense of a well-shaped structure in this movie; there's no clear idea of what the filmmakers thought about Patsy Cline, or what thoughts her life is supposed to inspire.
Someone recently told me that Jessica Lange has trouble acting. This and Frances prove the opposite. Lange is tremendous as Patsy Cline.
jessica lange is wonderful as always and ed harris is fine also but the real gem performance is ann wedgeworth as the mother
