    The story of Patsy Cline`s rise to fame
    Certificate: 15
    Running Time: 110 mins

    Release Date:

    From her beginnings in 1956 as an obscure singer scraping a living in local bars and clubs to her untimely death in a plane crash in 1963, Reisz`s biopic traces Patsy Cline`s (Jessica Lange) struggle to establish herself as a successful recording artist, focusing on the pressures she encountered along the way. Struggling with her turbulent marriage to Charlie Dick (Ed Harris) she tries to balance the needs of her children with the pressures of constant touring.

    While Patsy`s career takes off, Charlie`s jealousy manifests itself in increasingly drunken, abusive behaviour until their inevitable but acrimonious break up. Finally, just as her single Sweet Dreams hits the charts, comes the tragic conclusion to her meteoric rise to fame...
