Walk the Line review

Walk the Line Review

Johnny Cash was a genius and the story of his life is definitely worth telling. 'Walk the Line' does the job and then some.

Joaquin Phoenix not only acts and looks like a young Johnny Cash, but mimics his singing voice so accurately, itโ€™s hard to tell the difference. If that's not enough, Reese Witherspoon's imitation of June Carter is even better.

Witherspoon won the Oscar for the best actress in a lead role while Phoenix was nominated for best actor. There is no doubt that both out do themselves in this film and the sincerity of the Cash/Carter relationship is never called into question.

This film has a very wide appeal, it is dark and moving in some places and light-hearted and comical in others. Whatโ€™s more, some superb performances of Cash and Carterโ€™s songs, act as the cherry on the cake.
