I recently watched Frances (1982), a biopic starring Jessica Lange as '30s actress Frances Farmer. Though the name seemed familiar to me, I did not know anything about Frances, nor had I seen her films. Her fall, as depicted in the film, impacted me. It seemed like she had a lot to say.
However, I am excited to receive her film, Come and Get It from NetFlix this weekend. Her work proves hard to find, but I am hoping she can become a new favorite actress. I think she's beautiful.
Oh, and Jessica Lange gave an incredible performance. She received an Oscar nomination for that year, along with a supporting nom for Tootsie. She won the latter.
