Blue Sky

(Tony Richardson, US 1994, 101 min.)

In her second Oscar®-winning performance, Jessica Lange plays the mentally unbalanced wife of an Army officer (Tommy Lee Jones) whose antics have forced her and the family to move from one military base to another. Released three years after his death, director Tony Richardson’s last film plays out in a visually straightforward, unflashy manner and the result is a sharply focused, old-fashioned, but lively character study of the 1950s.
