Jessica Lange and Ed Harris were terrific unearthing the tragic core of Patsy Cline and her combustible relationship with her true love, Charlie Dick. Cline was almost killed in a car wreck, and a plane crash would write the final chapter, silencing her rich maple-syrup voice at 30. Downside? In Lange's lip-sync and the director's long shots, you feel the cheats. 21/2 guitars
