BLUE SKY (PG-13) A flawed but tough-minded family drama that centers on the explosively free-spirited antics of Carly Marshall (Jessica Lange), a veteran Army wife whose reckless appetite for life gets everyone around her in trouble. Lange creates one of the most authentic portrayals in movies of someone whose behavior flirts with craziness without quite crossing into it. After a while, Blue Sky becomes fairly overheated — it braids together personal and political scandal in a way that isn’t convincing — yet the film, at its best, is like a more organic (and spirited) version of John Cassavetes’ A Woman Under the Influence. B ( 242, Sept. 30)
