This dramatically satisfying portrayal of country music queen Loretta Lynn succeeds on every possible level, delivering a totally believable Lynn in Sissy Spacek, who won an Oscar for the role. Based on Lynns autobiography, Coal Miners Daughter traces the singers life from her impoverished Kentucky childhood, to her marriage at age 13, and subsequent years as a wife and mother, finally charting her rise to music superstardom. Spacek does all her own singing here, and she does Loretta Lynn proud. Whether or not youre a fan of country music, the remarkable chemistry between Spacek and Jones makes Coal Miners Daughter a Hollywood classic not to be missed. (Gregory Baird)
