3 stars out of 5 -- "Jessica Lange is great in this biopic of country singer Patsy Cline..."
SWEET DREAMS is a film biography of country-western singer Patsy Cline, whose fast rise to stardom ended prematurely in a tragic plane crash. The film focuses on Cline's marriage to Charlie Dick, a charming, manly ne'er-do-well. Charlie's lack of self-confidence makes him ill-equipped to deal with his wife's sudden fame. This leads to strife in the marriage, made worse by Charlie's drinking, cheating, and abuse.
Songs include "Crazy," "Walking After Midnight," and "Sweet Dreams."
