Sissy Spacek, who will make a guest appearance with the film, earned a Best Actress Academy Award with her standout performance as Loretta Lynn in this biopic about the famed country singer, who handpicked Spacek to play her. British filmmaker Michael Apted directed the film, which was adapted from Lynn’s biography by screenwriter Tom Rickman. Lynn’s pursuit of success with her husband Doo (Tommy Lee Jones) by her side, and her perseverance in the face of extreme hardship, is the embodiment of the American Dream. The film follows Lynn from the hills of Kentucky to the heights of country fame, where she even befriends Patsy Cline (Beverly D’Angelo). Portraying Lynn from her teen years into womanhood, Spacek also sang the film’s songs. Her virtuosic performance in the film cemented her reputation as one of the great actors of our time. — Lisa Elliott
