Coal Miner's Daughter (1980)

“Coal Miner’s Daughter”(1980) IMDb employs the considerable singing and acting talents of Sissy Spacek along with those of Tommy Lee Jones. As might be expected, the biopic of singing star Loretta Lynn contains a full dose of country and western music. I’m with Doo on this one. I’m normally not partial to country, but I do like Loretta’s singing in this film. Of course the music is not the whole story here in this recounting of the ups and downs of Loretta’s life, but the singing obviously cannot be minimized. The film demonstrates that Loretta Lynn had a wealth of material to draw on from her own life’s experiences to both write and sing from the heart with all those "hurtin’ " songs you heard coming out of the radio.
