There are only a handful of performers who are so iconic, that it only takes a few moments to recognize their work. The late Johnny Cash was one of these performers.
The 2005 film, Walk The Line, chronicles the life, music and struggles of the legendary musician. Stepping into the shoes and up to the microphone as Cash is Joaquin Phoenix. As his loyal, but sometimes questioning second wife, June Carter Cash is Reese Witherspoon.
The film is an honest, but dramatic and sometimes brutal portrayal of it’s lead character. Cash, like many performers then and now is beloved by his fans and works with the best in the business, but suffers from addiction.
I recommend it.
