Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon
Based on the life of Johnny Cash, the country music star, his rise from humble beginnings to stardom, followed by struggle with drugs etc. Joaquin Phoenix does a terrific job in the lead role. Reese Witherspoon handles her role with ease. I didn’t find her acting in this film anything out of the world or definitely not deserving of an Oscar. The movie as a whole is engaging and worth a watch. Personally, I was quite ignorant about Johnny Cash’s life, so the movie was informative for whatever its worth.
