" A treasure to watch." -- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Coal Miner's Daughter is the amazing true story based on the book Loretta Lynn wrote with George Veesey. It was the first country musician autobiography to hit the bestseller list and sold more than a million copies in six weeks. When bringing Loretta's story to the screen, director Michael Apted assembled an incredible cast: Sissy Spacek (who won an OscarÂ® for her role), Tommy Lee Jones, Beverly D'Angelo and Levon Helm. What resulted is a remarkable tale of a rousing love affair and a woman's triumph in making her name in the world.
