Film Walk the Line (2005)
Biopic of country singer Johnny Cash. Traumatised by the death of his brother as a child and scorned by his father, Cash leaves Arkansas to serve in the US Air Force in Germany, where he starts to write songs. Although reaching a high point in his career touring alongside Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis, he descends into drink and drug addiction, while fellow singer and future wife June Carter seems to be the only person standing between him and self-destruction. With Joaquin Phoenix and an Oscar-winning Reese Witherspoon.
Love this film...
Wasn't really into Johnny Cash 'til I watched this.
Joaquin Phoenix ( River's brother ) and Recce Witherspoon sing all the songs I found out later.
Absolutely brilliant. Well worth watching.

This is a great film. I knew very little about Johnny Cash and hated country music when I first saw it but it put me right (I still don't like country music, but Johnny Cash is an icon). Very recommended.

Great film, and an accurate representation of Cash's last autobiography. Great man, though flawed - aren't we all? Tremendous music over six decades. If you think country music is all sequins and cowboy boots; listen to the last couple of albums Cash released - hair-raising stuff.

I like country music without knowing much about it but if you watch the Johny Cash Specials he is the thing i like least . No special reason he just doesn`t float my boat.

I'm not a massive JC fan, but I think that the video for his cover of 'Hurt' is probably the greatest music video ever made:

This is my fave track. Taken from his album released in 2010 called The Man comes around.You may recognise it is it is being used to promote a new TV series.

I've used 'The Man Comes Around' song to get my boys out of bed in the morning - stirring stuff!
