Synopsis:
In Walk the Line, Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix powerfully portrays Johnny Cash, a young, passionate artist who rebelled against convention, revolutionised music, and always walked his own path regardless of the consequences. His troubled past, along with his outlaw persona, unbridled talent and passion for the woman he was destined to be with, led him on a path of self-destruction. Reese Witherspoon gives a Academy Award winning performance as June Carter, the greatest love of his life.

You Don't Have To Be A Johnny Cash Fan To Enjoy This Film. - Walk the Line review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
29/06/2006

I don't consider myself a fan of Johnny Cash especially his early period which this film covers (up until the end of the 60's) and as such I initially overlooked this film. What an oversight on my my part! Joaquin Phoenix was superb as Johnny Cash and despite the film clocking in at over 2 hours it really did just seem to fly by. I enjoyed the music too and I'll certainly be either looking for the soundtrack album or a decent JC Greatest Hits. An excellent enjoyable film.

Entertaining for fans and non-fans alike - Walk the Line review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
13/11/2006

I knew very little about Johnny Cash before watching this film and wouldn't have bothered if it had not been for the recommendation of my 17 year old son! I am so glad I did. I found the whole story absolutely fascinating, from the troubled childhood, with tragedy that haunts him for the rest of his life, to the hey day of his career. It was really interesting to see how his music had an effect on, and was affected by, the politics and societal trends of the time. Reece Witherspoon was outstanding as June Carter, for whom Johnny falls, and Jouqain Phoenix played the man with intensity. Both could also sing well - an added bonus. Even if, like me, you are not a big fan of country music, I am sure you will fnd yourself tapping your foot and singing along to the well known tunes. Definately worth a look.

So slow! - Walk the Line review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Less would definitely be more in this case. You could drop 30 minutes and not miss them. It's well acted but overall I was disappointed.
