Never take a pretty woman...

There is an old Calypso ditty that states "If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never take a pretty woman to be your wife." If you want to have a career in the Army, you might also want to avoid bi-polar women.

Tommy Lee Jones (The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada) was an Army Major, a nuclear engineer working on atomic tests, that had a gorgeous wife who was a little crazy. Jessica Lange (Broken Flowers) was awesome as his wife and won every award that year for her performance. She deserved every win in a movie that was a testament to love. No matter how crazy, Major Marshall (Jones) was there for her because of his love. And her love brought her out of her disorder long enough to save him.

This was director Tony Richardson's last film and he made it a winner all the way.

A Bit Rough But Gets Better

Jessica Lange stars in a period drama about a family moving to a military base, and she quickly becomes part of a cover-up involving nuclear bomb tests.

Lange won the 1994 Academy Award for Best Actress, along with the Golden Globe Award and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association award. So it seems appropriate to address her role, which is sort of polarizing.

Typically a main character has to be likable for a film to work, and it is hard for Lange to be likable -- she is morally loose, embarrasses her husband and seems to have a general disregard for her family and children. As the film progresses, she makes an effort to redeem herself, but will it be enough? Tommy Lee Jones is also good, playing Lange's supporting character. He goes through a range of emotions, which is interesting... though the scene that would usually be called Oscar-worthy is just sort of sad and disappointing. (I can't say what it is because it would ruin things, but those who have seen the film will know.)

unstable Jessica Lange great

It's the 60s. Nuclear engineer Capt. Hank Marshall (Tommy Lee Jones) monitors radiation hazards in the Army. His wife Carly (Jessica Lange) is wild and flirtatious. They move with their daughters Alex (Amy Locane) and Becky from the South Pacific to Fort Matthews in Alabama. Hank works under Col. Vince Johnson (Powers Boothe) in underground nuclear testing. Alex starts dating the colonel's son Glenn (Chris O'Donnell). Two cowboys accidentally get irradiated from a test. Carly has an affair with Vince. Vince tricks her into committing Hank into the mental ward in an effort to hide the affair and the cowboys' irradiation.

Jessica Lange flirts between sexual napalm and utter madness. Despite the craziness, she has great chemistry with Tommy Lee Jones. It could easily go camp but she makes it perfectly believable. TLJ shows some real passion. The family is dysfunctional but their connection is undeniable. The other parts with the military and nuclear testing do seem a little weaker. In the end, this is all about Lange.
