Walk the Line

Walk The LineWe went to see the Johnny Cash & June Carter story - Walk the Line (A+).  Juaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon (!) do a great job.  The acting is great, even from Ms. Witherspoon, and they both did their own singing.  The only time you hear the voices of Cash and Carter is in the closing credits song.

Johnny Cash's life story isn't pretty until he finally marries June Carter.  He lives a very self-destructive life until she steps in to help him recover from addiction to pills, and then life begins to turn around for him.

I didn't realize that he was on road tours with Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley in the 1950s.

I liked this love story better than Pride and Prejudice.

  1. I heard an interview on the radio that said his touring with Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis did not happen in the 1950s, but later.
