Overview

Blue Sky was the last film directed by Tony Richardson (Tom Jones) before his death in 1991 and one of the last releases from once-thriving Orion Films, whose bankruptcy kept the picture on the shelf for several years. It also features two career-high performances by Tommy Lee Jones and Jessica Lange, who won the Best Actress Oscar for this role, as Hank and Carly Marshall, a military couple whose marriage unravels under the pressure of his job and her mental instability. Hank is an Army captain at odds with his superiors over the wisdom of nuclear testing. Carly is a free spirit spiralling into a dangerous depression after the family's move from Hawaii to a nowhere base in Alabama alarms the couple's older daughter (Amy Locane) and sends Carly into an affair with the base commander (Powers Boothe).

My husband is retired from the military. This movie took me back to the days that we lived on military bases. Yes, I belonged to a wives club on base, and we had a woman in our club who was soooooo much like the wife in this movie. This movie does show military life--in reference to family life. I laughed and cried along with the turmoils of this military family. It is one of my very favorite movies. Watching it takes me back to my storehouse of memories of base life. It's like walking down memory lane. I think anybody who has ever lived on a military base, and especially women who have belonged to a base wives club will love this movie.
