Frances (1982) – Imprint Collection #243

Despite having a controlling mother and constant disapproval from her father, a 16-year-old girl is swept off her feet into the glory of Hollywood. But with her strong political opinions, a flamboyant love-life and then imprisonment, she falls further into the depths of misfortune.

Frances received two Academy Award nominations – one for Jessica Lange in her leading role as troubled actress Frances Farmer, and one for Kim Stanley (Séance on a Wet Afternoon). This powerful biopic also stars Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) and the late Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff, August: Osage County). 

Created by the team behind The Elephant Man (1980) – writers Eric Bergren and Christopher De Vore, and producers Jonathan Sanger and Mel Brooks. 

“Jessica Lange is exhilarating… Her performance as the bright, beautiful, emotionally ravaged Hollywood actress of the late 1930’s… is stunning.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times
