Patsy Cline defined modern country music by using her singular talent and heart, wrenching emotional depth to break down barriers of gender, class and genre. In her music and her life, Cline set a standard of authenticity that artists still strive toward. After years of hard work to overcome gender biases and her own personal hardships and professional missteps, she achieved success — only to have it punctured by uncanny premonitions and her untimely death at age 30. With exclusive access to the Cline estate, the film features rare performances, exclusive archival interviews with Cline’s contemporaries, and new interviews with a wide range of artists who have been influenced by Cline. Narrated by Rosanne Cash, When Patsy Cline Was... Crazy examines the roots of Cline’s impact in both personal and cultural terms to illuminate how she arrived at a pivotal moment in the evolution of American culture, and synthesized country, pop and rock in a new way.
