Directed by Graeme Clifford | 1982

With Jessica Lange, Kim Stanley, Sam Shepard

Jessica Lange, in a searingly intense, Oscar-nominated performance, lights up this true (if inevitably embellished) Tinseltown tragedy about the rollercoaster rise and fall of Frances Farmer, the headstrong, defiantly leftist Golden Age starlet whose cataclysmic personal struggles have passed into the realm of Hollywood lore. Drifting in and out of the wreckage of Farmer’s life is Shepard as her on-again, off-again communist lover.
