it is well worth the watch.

Needless to say this is an intriguing film that is somewhat based on true testing which took place in sparsely populated areas of Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico in the late-1950s and early-1960s.

he juggles his wife's erratic behavior with stoic calm while at the same time attempts to help his daughters cope with the challenges of a new move, their mother's antics and their own coming of age.

Their life is unstable because Jessica had become tired of this kind of living, and she could not let her life end like other officers' wives', spiritless, boring and charmless.

Either way she was entertaining camp so I wasn't sure how i felt about it overall.

Entertaining .

While I tend to agree that the ending was a bit too formulaic, this film has good performers, an interesting theme, and a reflection of times in America which were not so innocent and family oriented after all.

Worth watching.

Jessica Lange's Oscar-Winning Performance in 'Blue Sky', is Stunning!

Jessica Lange's supporting-actress Oscar is one of a few noteworthy things about the abysmally boring "Blue Sky.

Set in Alabama in the mid-1950s, Jessica Lange plays an Army Engineer's wife and the mother of two young girls who is tired of being dragged from one military home to the next.

The 2-Time Academy-Award Winning Legendary Actress once again lights the screen on fire by delivering such a stunning performance.

Bland drama .

Jessica Lange is Stunning.
