Frances

1982

Graeme Clifford
Director

Fairly grim look at the life and times of actress Frances Farmer consigned to mental institutions and barbaric "treatments". Superb performance from Lange, whom we thought was merely decorative up until this point (King Kong anyone?). Look out for Kevin Costner and the police station from Assault on Precinct 13!
