Part of Music City Mondays.
Well, looky here…an honest-to-God Music City Monday, and a biopic concerning two of Old Hickory Lake’s most famous residents. Nashville native Reese Witherspoon won the Oscar for her role as June Carter Cash in WALK THE LINE, with husband Johnny played by Joaquin Phoenix. Shot on location in and out of town with a smattering of local talent both in front of and behind the camera, T-Bone Burnett overseeing the music department, and director James Mangold working from Johnny Cash’s two autobiographies, WALK THE LINE wowed audiences upon release in 2005, and is here to wow again.
“WALK THE LINE is the only movie I've seen three times this year — and I'd happily watch it again and again.“ —Lou Lumenick, New York Post “I advise you to catch up with WALK THE LINE, if only for Ms. Witherspoon's transcendent joyousness as a still-growing legend within a legend.” —Andrew Sarris, Observer
