  • Editorial Reviews

    Coal Miner's Daughter is the amazing true story based on the book Loretta Lynn wrote with George Vecsey. It was the first country musician autobiography to hit the bestseller list and sold more than a million copies in six weeks. When bringing Loretta's story to the screen, director Michael Apted assembled an incredible cast: Sissy Spacek (who won an Oscar for her role), Tommy Lee Jones, Beverly D'Angelo and Levon Helm. What resulted is a remarkable tale of a rousing love affair and a woman's triumph in making her name in the world.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Biopic of Loretta Lynn Just Gets Better with Age! October 24, 2005
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    To me, the success of a film biography isn't whether fans of the personality will watch the movie; they will, whether it is any good, or not...the true measure of success is how the film captures an audience who DON'T know the person, and wins their hearts.

    "Coal Miner's Daughter" does this, better than nearly any other 'biopic', and the film is as passionate and wonderful today as it was in 1980.

    There are several reasons for the film's 'staying' power; first, British director Michael Apted, making his first American feature, brought an unbiased eye to the lifestyle of poor but proud rural America. Eschewing the clichés of the "Smokey and the Bandit" and "Dukes of Hazzards" stereotypes, he cast many 'locals' in the film, and attempted to recreate, as realistically as possible, the world Loretta Webb/Lynn knew so well.

    Second, the film boasts not one or two, but three powerhouse supporting performances. Tommy Lee Jones, who Apted picked over Harrison Ford, is a revelation as Doolittle 'Mooney' Lynn. With only a handful of credits when the film was released, he demonstrated the dazzling combination of humor and sensitivity that would eventually win him a place as one of our finest actors. Levon Helm, making his dramatic debut as Loretta's father, Ted, is even more impressive. Low-key, but irresistible, he offers so much love and power in his portrayal that it's easy to see why he would remain influential to his superstar daughter, long after his passing. In a brief but sparkling portrayal, Beverly D'Angelo channels Patsy Cline to perfection (I may be alone in my opinion, but I prefer her portrayal over Jessica Lange's, in "Sweet Dreams").

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best dat-gum movies ever! June 27, 2003
    Format:DVD
    Finally, it's on DVD!
    Okay, I'm one of those folks who knows this movie up and down, back and forth, word-for-Kentucky-word, and proud of it!
    I remember seeing this film on the big screen in 1980, when I barely knew who Loretta Lynn was, and I loved it dearly from that moment on.
    If this film hadn't been up against my other all-time favorite movie for the Best Picture Oscar in 1980, it should have (and would have) won, hands-down.
    I waited for years for this film to finally be released on DVD, and I wasn't disappointed. My VHS edition, while as wonderful as a pan&scan movie can be, was worn out from repeated viewing. The quality of the picture and sound on the DVD is superb, as are the special features, including an interview with Director Michael Apted and Miss Loretta Lynn herself, as well as a rememberance by Tommy Lee Jones. Once you've watched the whole film all the way through, you'll want to watch it again with the commentary by Sissy Spacek and Director Michael Apted.
    Even if you have never heard the name "Loretta Lynn", you'll adore and treasure your "Coal Miner's Daughter" DVD.
    My Jaw's-a-swellin' up - from pure happiness!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Diamonds From Coal. June 5, 2002
    Format:VHS Tape
    I LOVE this movie. This heartwarming, true rag-to-riches film about the life of Loretta Lynn took even the most sophisticated audiences by surprise when it was first released. Sissy Spacek is wonderfully accurate in her portrayal of the legendary but still humble and approachable country music star. This film made people who HATED country music take a second look. The story of the backwards, backwoods, painfully shy little girl whose simple, self-penned, biographical songs made her a huge star with almost unequaled # 1 country hits, is just as touching and great as when it was released. Tommy Lee Jones is perfect as "Doo", the man who stood by his woman, and Beverly D'Angelo gives a memorable performance as the legendary Patsy Cline. The fact that Spacek and D'Angelo so effectively do all their own singing, considering the shoes they had to fill, just makes this film all that much of a wonder. Levon Helm, of The Band, is also very good as "Lorettys" daddy. Just an all- around terrific film, with many touching moments from a by-gone time, when a little girl with a record could tap on the radio station window one day, and be a star a week later. Sissy Spacek's Oscar winning performance makes for a total class production about a total class lady. Loretta Lynn became one of this city boys favorites since seeing this film, and she remains so... a true, greatly admired, humanitarian *star*, who could teach most other celebrities a thing or two about "stardom". A perfect film for the whole family, the ultimate "feel good" movie. Thanks Loretty !! (And Sissy, too.) Just GREAT!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT, GREAT MOVIE. WHO HATES THIS MOVIE? September 16, 1999
    By A Customer
    Format:VHS Tape
    Loretta Lynn is one of the most beautiful voices that is out there. I may not agree with her seemingly uniformed political opinions but she is not a bad person. In fact my love for her increases every time she sings. She is what country should be. A strong woman not afraid to address issues and with real emotion that severely lacks today. The music also has emotion, not like a country star today who wants to sound rock and roll or so concerned with image singing about car parts and thinking if they sing about "simple" things that people will view them that way. No, Loretta is stronger than that and you can see why. Beautiful locations were picked by director Micheal Apted who really seems to love the mountain land as a character just as he did in Nell. I grew up in those mountains and they affect your life profoundly. Sissy is so great as is the tragically underrated Beverly D'Angelo who should have at least been nominated!!
