COAL MINER’S DAUGHTER (Theatrical Release USA 1980)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

The Coal Miner’s Daughter
—based on the autobiography of Loretta Lynn—is refreshingly WOW! entertainment. Earthy, real, almost award winning…some of Sissy Spacek’s best work and does a very young Tommy Lee Jones’ career no disfavors. It’s a comfort film as it promotes the rise from absolute poverty to a position of wealth. It’s a great chick flick that boosts belief in the impossible dream and success in achieving, realization, and materialization of the dream.
