NotesStory of country star, Loretta Lynn, rising from poverty to world fame. Interesting especially for the portrait of poverty in Kentucky and the portrayal by Sissy Spacek. Even if you hate country music this film rises above such prejudice (or taste). At the height of her fame Lynn has a nervous breakdown resulting from overwork and her strained marriage.
