Walk the Line

Walk the Line (2005)

Among the pantheon of great country singers, Johnny Cash (played here by Joaquin Phoenix) may just be the most enigmatic. James Mangold's film distills Cash's transformation from man to icon -- from his hardscrabble days on an Arkansas farm to Sun Records in Memphis, Tenn., where Cash finally found a way for his talent to come into its own. Reese Witherspoon plays his beloved June, alongside co-stars Robert Patrick and Shelby Lynne.
My Two Cents: A great soundtrack and wonderful chemistry between its two lead stars masks the fact that this is an average movie about a guy whose life story isn't nearly as fascinating as his musical catalouge
