I enjoyed this sad but realistic movie.
17 July 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a good movie, but the portrayal of Frances Farmer by Actress Jessica Lange was absolutely worthy of an award. That version of her life is truly a film every aspiring actor should see. "Frances" is one of the most powerful movies I have seen and I highly recommend it.
