  1. Landen Celano's rating of the film Coal Miner's Daughter

    Authenticity is the name of the game, not merely in production detail, but to make the film itself feel like a real story and not an imitation of someone's life. There's no over dramatization here, just attention to character and development.

  2. Michael Peer's rating of the film Coal Miner's Daughter

    Coal Miner's Daughter is a bona-fide masterpiece. It's everything you would want in a perennially great film: an authentic uplifting real life story full of twists and endless tribulations. Tommy and Sissy are knockouts and give two the best performances of their careers. Having not known anything about Loretta Lynn, I was fascinated by this unlikely story. It will sweep you off your feet and move you to tears.

  3. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Coal Miner's Daughter

    ***1/2. I'm a big country fan and I consider this biopic as excellent. Sissy Spacek who sings herself Loretta Lynn's songs is even exceptional (Academy award). Strongly recommended.

  4. Aardsy's rating of the film Coal Miner's Daughter

  5. Mark Tallo's rating of the film Coal Miner's Daughter

    A unique and American story.

  6. Scotch's rating of the film Coal Miner's Daughter

    It's unusual for me to come out of a celebrity biopic not feeling bashed in the head by a fan's dream portrait. But it was hard to sympathize with any of the characters because everything was too quickly gleaned over (eg. did her husband just rape her? did Patsy just die? is she addicted to opiates? oh well, moving on). Also, how strange to have a film made about your life when you're only 48. Where's Dolly's movie?!

  7. courtneylesueur's rating of the film Coal Miner's Daughter

    Full of excellent performances.

  8. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Coal Miner's Daughter

    Pretty much the quintessential music biopic, Michael Apted's COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER traces the rise of country music superstar Loretta Lynn from her humble roots in the Kentucky mountains to stardom. Buoyed by incredible performances by Sissy Spacek and Tommy Lee Jones. Spacek's performance transcends mere mimicry, as the film makes Lynn a fully realized character rather than just a representation.

  9. Roscoe's rating of the film Coal Miner's Daughter

    Magnificent performances from Spacek and Jones make this film more than worth seeing. They are a joy to behold.
