Storyline

A semi-fictional account of the friendship between country music stars Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn in the early 1960s is presented. Before their meeting in 1961, they led somewhat parallel lives as poor and simple country girls trying to make it big in the business - Patsy's career whose at the time was far more advanced than Loretta's - and both being in loving yet far from perfect marriages. While Patsy largely controlled her career with her management team regardless of the wants of her then second husband Charlie Dick, Loretta's husband, Oliver Lynn, more commonly known as either Doolittle or Mooney, controlled Loretta's life, including her career, he wanting to maintain her simple image without any "whorish" embellishments such as makeup.

Love this movie
2 February 2020 | by catherinederoetSee all my reviews

I didn't expect to like this movie and I ended up loving it. Jessie and Megan absolutely nailed their parts. Listening to Jessie's Kentucky accent was mind-boggling - she sounds exactly like the folks from Eastern Kentucky (I live in Kentucky). Megan was absolutely incredible. She brought Patsy back to life - more so than Jessica Lange in Sweet Dreams or Beverly D'Angelo in Coal Miner's daughter. Love, love, love this movie and I am now a huge fan of Jessie and Megan.
