If you liked the movie Ray starring Jamie Fox as Ray Charles, you cannot miss Walk the Line. The BSU and I went to the early show on Friday.
This is a good movie. Its sometimes uncomfortable watching the young upcoming star Johnny Cash trying to run away from his demons in a desperate spiral of drugs and booze, but its a touching film none the less. It is a film of redemption and deep love between two people that eventually were married for 35 years after the drugs and booze were conquered. Its a story of a brash, driven Johnny Cash and an equally strong, determined June Carter who refuses to let the man destroy himself.
Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon play the 2 main characters and they are fabulous! They do all their own singing and a dang fine job of it too. They are completely believable playing their parts and its easy to see the characters through their acting. They both deserve awards for their parts.
Its a excellent movie and I really recommend it!
