FRANCES (1982). Spiritual Movie Review - Jacklyn A. Lo

The keywords in the movie Frances ( 1982) are arrogance, uncontrolled mind and the following negative karma.

physical reality

We are all coming to the physical reality to clean up ourself from mistakes we have done before as well as to go through new situations.


A life scenario is programmed in that way, that people, situations and environment provide useful lessons for us to be learnt.


The programmed life script is individual and is based on the level of the person’s consciousness, energy potential and age and quality of a soul.


A situation provided for one person might be solved a long time ago by another and might be too “heavy” to carry for a third one.


At the beginning of the movie Frances ( 1982), we meet a highly intellectual girl with undeveloped spiritual qualities of a soul.


Her however intellect pushes her to make profound discoveries about herself and a world around her, particularly God.


However, as vibrations of her soul are rough, she is not able to feel a presence of God and makes conclusions in line with her sensations.

life scenario

In the beginning, her life scenario gives her many positive surprises.

Besides of her prettiness, she wins an essay completion and gets a monetary prize.


Then she successfully starts her acting career and gets a reward – a fascinating trip to Russia.


And later even more – she is recognised as a promising actress in Hollywood and gets a several years’ contract!

However, Francis is not a mature soul yet.


Being a beginner in her career, she tries to impose her opinion on the filmmakers and seeing a better chance for herself she insists on the braking a work contract with Hollywood letting everyone down who invested in her.


Arrogance, lack of appreciation what was given to her, disregard for morality and alcohol abuse slowly but steadily generate heavy negative karma to her.

mental impurities

The mental impurities that have been evident since Frances’ adolescence (God is dead) have grown significantly under the influence of alcohol.


Therefore, the smallest irritation quickly grows up to anger and even hatred.
Since anger and hatred affect the most a person itself, Frances continuously experiences side effects from her irritation, e.g. depressions and binge drinking.


Above all, her troubled mind doesn’t give her a chance to realise that the “evil” is she herself, but not her mom or other folks around.


As Frances is not able to learn lessons that life and karma give to her, she continuously re-return to suffering, that is steadily increasing.


However, the ending of the film is positive.
“Cleaned-up” peaceful Frances gives an interview on TV where she confirmes her ability to deep thinking about herself and higher powers.

give a hand

Most importantly, she publicly expresses her changed attitude to God and her willingness to give a hand to other people who are on the same loop of suffering as she was.


In conclusion, the film Frances (1982), based on a real-life story of an American actress Francis Farmer, is an excellent lesson for all of us – arrogance and uncontrolled mind are not suitable for anyone.
