About the Movie
In the acclaimed performance that earned her the Academy Award® for Best Actress, Sissy Spacek stars as legendary Loretta Lynn, the dirt poor Appalachian Mountains girl who rose from humble beginnings to become the "Queen of Country Music." At eighteen, the mother of four children and busy housewife still finds time to write and sing songs at small fairs and local honky-tonks. Recognizing her raw talent and huge potential, her ambitious husband Mooney (Tommy Lee Jones) prods her into making a record and going to Nashville. After a performance at the Grand Ole Opry, the record becomes a smash hit, launching her career to super stardom and changing the sound and style of country music forever.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A thoughtful, endearing film charting the life of singer Loretta Lynn from the depths of poverty in rural Kentucky to her eventual rise to the title of 'queen of country music'.
Fresh: The movie isn't great art, but it has been made with great taste and style; it's more intelligent and observant than movie biographies of singing stars used to be.
Fresh: Highly conventional stuff, but lovingly constructed to produce unremarkable but heart-warming entertainment.
Fresh: A rousing musical biopic that is a cut above its peers.
This is somethin' good
My mommy used to watch this movie so much when I was younger and I just couldn't understand why she liked it. Now Im older, it truely is a great movie! Sissy is great!
So thrilled iTunes finally got this one!
Coal Miner's Daughter is a tour de force for Sissy Spacek! This is also one of the few movies out there that portrays the rise of a musical legend (any kind of music) from a woman's perspective. One of my top ten all time favorite movies. No matter what music you listen too, this movie will be compelling.
BEST MOVIE EVER!!!
