Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 12/01/1982
"...It's quite an accomplishment for Jessica Lange..."
New York Times - 12/03/1982
"...A magnificent performance by Jessica Lange. Here is a performance so unfaltering, so tough, so intelligent and so humane that it seems as if [Lange] is just now, at long last, making her motion picture debut..."
Entertainment Weekly - 02/02/2002
"...[Lange and Stanley's] suffocating scenes together have some of the gothic thrill of CARRIE..."

Plot Synopsis:

FRANCES tells the life story of independent, strong-willed actress Frances Farmer, whose beauty, talent, and intelligence lead to a successful stage and film career in the 1930s and 1940s. Tragically, her mental health soon began to deteriorate due to substance abuse, poor psychiatric care, a controlling stage mother, and her own radical and unyielding beliefs.
