Growing up, the 1976 King Kong was one of my favourite films to watch. At the time it was scary, mysterious and would transport any young kid to an alternate world where monsters and fantasy lived. Jessica Lange was the star of the film and she has since always been a part of what cinema is to me.
The gorgeous blonde went on to further enchant the world with so many other films that followed and is now a legend in everyone’s books. 4 decades after her debut in King Kong, Lange has gone on to establish herself as one of the finest actresses of all time. With several Oscar and Golden Globe Nominations, there is no denying the talent she possesses. Here’s the list of top Jessica Lange films.
10. Sweet Dreams (1985)
Sweet Dreams is a 1985 American biographical film which tells the story of country music singer Patsy Cline. The film stars Jessica Lange as Cline and Ed Harris plays her lover. Lange was praised widely for her performance and went on to receive an Academy Award nomination for best actress.
Sweet Dreams is a beautiful tribute and celebration of the life of Patsy Cline who we learn intimately about in the film. The two leads are fantastic as Jessica Lange delivers a charming and expressive job while Harris is persuasive and mesmerising.
