Synopsis

"I'm proud to be a coal miner's daughter" says the song from which this film takes its title, but we also learn that while it's a source of pride, it's also a tough life. This is a riveting biopic about the country singer Loretta Lynn, who came from poverty and had four kids of her own by the time she was 17. The struggle for a better life is a great basis for drama, and Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek is terrific as the uncrushable Loretta.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
