Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Jessica Lange deserves three cheers for her performance as an army wife in the early 1960s. Sensuous and unpredictable, Lange bridles at the restrictions in her life and is constantly seeking attention. Tommy Lee Jones is the nuclear engineer who adores her, but is just as passionate toward his career. Lange and Jones sizzle in spite of a weak plot tangent concerning the military cover-up of nuclear testing in the Nevada desert. The love story is everything as it bursts with undercurrents of passion, regret, sorrow, and joy. Lange's sexy, high-strung performance earned her an Oscar. It was director Tony Richardson's last film. --Rochelle O'Gorman

Product Description

Blue Sky ou Sous le ciel du Nevada au Québec est un film américain de Tony Richardson, sorti en 1994. Hank Marshall est un officier très compétent dans la recherche nucléaire américaine, mais il pose problème à ses supérieurs pour deux raisons. La première est le comportement un peu léger de son épouse, Carly, qui fait scandale dans chaque base où il est affecté ; la seconde est sa réticence affichée à certaines expériences. Quand sa situation devient menacée, c'est l'amour de sa femme qui le sortira du pétrin.

This is an extraordinary movie, with a role that earned jessica Lange an Oscar for Best Actress. Lange is Carly Marshall, a mentally unstable wife and mother who refuses to be pigeonholed into the life of moving from military base to military base as her husband's career dictates (Tommy Lee Jones in a powerful role.) This wreaks havoc on their two daughters (Amy Locane and Anna Klemp) who must pick up the slack of running the household and raising themselves since their mother can't do it and their father expends all his energy running after and caring for her.
Carly is like a large hibiscus rapidly outgorwing its greenhouse. She just thinks about how very glamorous she is like the movie star du jour in the late 1960s. In addition, her husband's work as a military nuclear engineer leads him to discover a cover-up of nuclear testing in Nevada. This situation forces Carly to think of someone other than herslef and show a little love and strength of character.
It is an original story, with a great cast and writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great film with wonderful acting... May 7 2003
Format:DVD
This film depicts Jessica Lange as the wild, slightly crazy wife of Army officer Tommy Lee Jones. Lange and Jones are really perfectly paired in this film, and their acting talents shine through. Overlooked by many are the wonderful jobs the actors who played their children performed. It is quite a shame that this film did not receive the recognition it deserved, for the plot and acting are tremendous. The DVD is short on special features (only has the theatrical trailer), but the audio and video quality are excellent. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars True love tested Oct. 10 2001
Format:DVD
This story brings home the conflicts, stress, emotions, and hardships of being a family in the Army. (A situation I am glad I never endured) An emotional and sexually charged wife of a career military man trying to deal with family, loneliness, and the stress of moving alot and her adoring, but career minded husband.
Her sexuality and infidelity strain the marraige and he is torn between his morals and ability to do his job, and keep his family together. Emotionally riveting!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lange and Jones are Acting Tour de Forces Here! Feb. 11 2001
Format:DVD
When Jessica Lange won the Best Actress Oscar for this film, few people in the USA had even seen it. For one, its release had been held up for several years and it sat gathering dust in its film cans in the studio. Her Oscar win though finally made many scurry to the theaters to see it. Lange plays a military wife to Tommy Lee Jones' career military man. They have 2 children and have followed him from base to base. What absolutely defines Lange's character though is a combination of constant sensuality with a personality that totters on the edge of breakdown. She is hot for her husband, Jones, but she also acts like a sexual lodestar to other men. Her very presence on a military base can cause incredible unrest among the other husbands and wives. I wish Lange and Jones always had screenplays this good to devote their talents. Often, their talents are wasted on less well written and directed works. If you have overlooked this character-driven masterpiece of acting, don't overlook it any longer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie! Dec 9 2003
Format:DVD
I very much enjoyed the movie for reasons that I can relate to the stress military life brings to a family. My husband is active duty Army & our family has endured the moves to various places much like the ones depicted in the film. I can relate to Jessica Lange's character, because I know how challenging it is to try and make inadequate housing feel like a cozy home. It can definitely bring out the *crazy* in any sane person!
I feel both Tommy Lee Jones & Jessica Lange gave stellar performances in this film!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The life of an emotionally disturbed woman April 7 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The story of Carly Marshall, a mentally unbalanced woman who nearly destroys her marriage and the lives of her family, and her military officer husband, whose deep love for her is the only reason why he deals with her emotional outbursts and stays in the marriage, when he has every option to leave. Deeply personal and reflective of what some American lives really are; a heartwrenching performance by Jessica Lange, who won a well-deserved Oscar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lange did deserve the award! Dec 16 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Jessica Lange plays a stressed out "crazy" military housewife who moves with her husband tommy lee jones and kids from hawaii to alabama. She gets involved with his boss who is working on a radiation project Jones does not believe in. LAnge has to go far to prove her love for Jones and she does. i read this movie sat on the shelf for three years becase its distributor Orion went out of business. Excellant movie and beautiful music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not fan worship here, but Nov. 20 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Jessica and Tommy really do some great and exciting acting in this movie. Her portayal of the 60s wife in paradise brought back a lot of memories of the way I grew up seeing the confusion that decade put young women in. I watched my older teenage girl cousins dating and marrying and divorcing, as I played with my Barbie dolls and worryed about hiding under my desk and not watching the flash.
