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.

Lange and Harris, dangerously well-matched, give us lovers whom only success could sunder.

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.

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.

Miss Lange makes herself a perfect physical extension of the vibrant, changeable, enormously expressive woman who can be heard on these recordings.

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.
