Apart from the fact that I enjoyed and respected it, I remember three or four distinct things from Michael Apted‘s Coal Miner’s Daughter (which came out on Bluray two and a half weeks ago). The obvious effect that Sissy Spacek‘s Loretta Lynn had on the folks in the honky tonk when she first sang, and her white socks and loafers as she kicked the washing machine on the front porch. Tommy Lee Jones‘ perfect performance as her husband and that line about professional prospects in Butcher Hollow: “Coal mine, moonshine or move on down the line.” Levon Helm‘s sad-eyed performance as Loretta’s daddy and Beverly D’Angelo‘s performance as Patsy Cline.
