Editorial Reviews

She was the first female solo artist to be elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Thirty-two years after her untimely death in a plane crash in Tennessee, Patsy Cline's "Greatest Hits" album sold over six million copies. Loved by her fans today as much - if not more-than she was at the height of her fame, the life, the loves and most of all the voice of Patsy Cline is legendary. SWEET DREAMS tells her story. Marrying the unique singing voice of Patsy Cline, with a powerhouse performance by Jessica Lange, director Karel Reisz creates an extraordinary portrait of the passionate, fun-loving, soft-spoken, loud-living life and times of one of country's - and one of popular music's greatest singing stars. Covering the years 1956through 1963, from her rise to fame and the top of the charts through TV talent shows and country bars; through her turbulent marriage to Charlie Dick and the demands of touring which would lead to the fatal plane crash, this remarkable story is one that will be treasured by fans old and new. A celebration of the talent we love, and the story of Patsy Cline.

Format: VHS Tape
This movie, featuring great performances by Jessica Lange as Patsy Cline, and Ed Harris as Charley Dick, Cline's husband, chronicles the life and times of Patsy Cline, her rise to stardom, and her all too brief hold on it.
Jessica Lange gives a wonderful, believable performance as Patsy Cline. Ed Harris, as her hard drinking, womanizing, and ultimately abusive husband, plays his role to perfection. John Goodman has a small role in the film as Charley Dick's good ol' boy, meat head friend.
The movie shows how this poorly educated, young woman with a throaty and achingly rich voice went on to become one of the greatest crossover talents ever to come out of Nashville. Her flame burned brightly for several years, until it was extinguished when a plane in which she was a passenger crashed headlong into a mountain.
Her music runs throughout the entire film. If you are not a Patsy Cline fan when you first sit down to view this film, then you surely will be by the time you finish doing so. No one sang with more feeling than Patsy Cline, and she evidently lived her life the same way. This is a terrific movie and well worth watching!

I didn't know much about Patsy kline or her music before seeing this movie, but when I first saw it about 10 years ago, I was blown away. The performances of the actors, Both Jessica Lange and Ed Harris, were incredible, and although it was a typical hollywood biography (as someone else stated in their posting)it was still a great movie. I have recently purchased the DVD after seeing it on cable the other night. I highly recommend it.

Format: DVD
Reality is generally more complicated than any motion picture can possibly convey--and such is the case with SWEET DREAMS, the 1985 bio-pic of singer Patsy Cline, which ran into a firestorm of criticism at the time of its release. For Patsy Cline was not a figure from the remote past. She and her life were extremely well recalled by family, friends, and co-workers, and one and all attacked the film as an extremely inaccurate portrait of her, her husband Charlie, and her life and career.
To a certain extent, the validity of these complaints about the film are a matter of opinion. But it does seem likely that the script softened Cline's harder edges and over-emphasized the stormy nature of her marriage in order to cast her in the role of victim. What isn't opinion is the way the film treats her career: it didn't happen like that, and while the film presents her as a great star at the time of her death in truth she had released only a handful of widely distributed records by 1963--and while some of them were big hits, they weren't quite as big as you might think. Even the celebrated "Sweet Dreams" never made it to the top spot on any music chart, and it was not until well after her death that she received full recognition for her remarkable work.
So instead of truth, or even a good approximation of it, SWEET DREAMS gives us the legend, the folk tale of the rough-and-tumble girl with the big, emotional voice who came from no where, married an abusive husband, and leaped into stardom that was cut short by an untimely death. And as legend, the film works very well.
The weak point of the film is the script, which plays largely to a "domestic drama" aspect and tends to smooth out the characters in a "santized for your protection" sort of way.

I was fortunate enough to obtain this video over the summer and just watched it again. Jessica Lange is perfect as Patsy Cline, Ed Harris accurately portrays her abusive husband, Charlie Dick and Ann Wentworth is sublime as Patsy's mom, Helda. Whether or not you are a fan of Patsy's music, this is an excellent film bio that keeps you interested throughout. How tragic that she was just beginning to really become a big star when she was instantly killed in a plane crash. I've a feeling had she lived, she'd still be singing and a force to be reckoned with. Highly recommended!

Patsy Cline, Jessica Lange, what more do we need. Let me tell you this is a definitive example of Country Music at its best. I fell in love with Patsy in 1960 and the affair has lasted 46 years. Her music is timeless. This movie has a great cast, is well acted and is not the usual stumbling memorial to a star long gone. For CM enthusiasts or for those who haven't learned the truth yet but need converting, this is a classic movie with the BEST music and sound track.

An absolute must see movie.

My children watched it many times while growing up and when I purchased it, they were just as excited to watch it again. Not every day you have 3 teenagers wanting to sit home with mom on a Friday night and watch a movie from so many years ago. The movie tells the story of Patsy Cline and you walk away feeling like you just saw a movie about your friend. Great Great movie!!!

This movie got me interested in Patsy Cline's music back in the 1980s. Jessica Lange is perfect as Patsy. And no matter what I see Ed Harris in, he will always be Charlie Dick. He was so good in that role. If you have a problem with profanity, don't watch this movie. Patsy must have had a really "salty" tongue. This is a great movie just the same.
