Very well made…but unpleasant.
Just because a film is well made does not mean I would recommend it or watch it again. Such is the case with “Sweet Dreams”, a warts and all biopic about Patsy Cline. So why do I say this? After all, the acting was very good as was nearly everything else about the film. Well, it’s because although Patsy Cline was a great singer with the voice of an angel, her home life was a dysfunctional mess…and is about as enjoyable to watch as a bucket filled with vomit! It very much illustrates the saying “Smart women, foolish choices”.
So, if you don’t mind watching Cline (Jessica Lange) being beaten up by her husband, Mr. Dick (Ed Harris), then by all means watch it. But I just found it all quite hard to take…and you might be happier just reading about her on Wikipedia.
