    In this sweet biopic,Lange plays the country bumpkin who sang like an angel.In respect,while her career was going up,Patsy (Lange) had difficulty keeping a reign on husband Charlie (Harris).Cline was wonderful,with such songs as Walking After Midnight,Crazy and the title tune. The heartbreak ending was saddening,that a plane crash took away the sweetest voice in Country Music.
