Just perfect. That sums up this movie pretty good. walk_the_line1Joaquin Phoenix plays mister John R. Cash, thought his tough life, starting with his childhood and up to his death. Robert Patrick plays Johnny’s strict father, whose respect he`s been trying to win thought his life. Featuring original John R. Cash soundtrack, music in this movie is great; I did not even know that he is that good. Alcohol, music, drugs, fucked up love, and everything else that makes a star is here, and it’s put together perfectly. Enjoy.

Director: James Mangold

Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon, Ginnifer Goodwin, Robert Patrick

Fun Stuff: Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon performed all of the songs themselves, without being dubbed. They also learned to play their instruments (guitar and auto-harp, respectively) from scratch. The scene where Johnny Cash pulls the sink off the wall was not scripted. Joaquin Phoenix actually pulled it off the wall.
