Factory sealed DVD Singer. Rebel. Outlaw. Hero. With his driving freight-train chords, steel-eyed intensity and a voice as dark as the night, the legendary "Man in Black" revolutionized music?and forged his legacy as a genuine American icon. Golden Globe winners Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon star (and sing) as Johnny Cash and June Carter in this inspiring true story of one man's unwavering devotion to his sound, his message and the greatest love of his life.
We saw Walk the Line when it was in theaters. Joaquin Phoenix was phenomenal - his performance as a young Johnny Cash was spot on - it was evident that Phoenix had studied Cash's character and music, so that he could deliver as pure a portrayal of Johnny Cash, as possible. Joaquin Phoenix was perfectly suited to play Johnny Cash. His acting, and singing was impeccable, and it was very disappointing when he did not win the Best Actor Academy Award for this role.
