Synopsis

The story begins in Depression-era Arkansas, tracing the origins of Cash’s sound back to his beginnings as a sharecropper’s son; moves through his wild tours with rock and roll pioneers Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and Waylon Jennings; and culminates in his unforgettable 1968 concert in Folsom Prison. He became the hottest artist of the day, outselling even the Beatles. WALK THE LINE chronicles the birth of a new kind of American artist who had to move past raw anger, the ravages of addiction, and the temptations of stardom to discover the voice that would make him a hero to generations. Those early years encompass the themes that ran through Cash’s music and minimalist style: death, love, treachery, sin, hope and faith.

Dove Review

“Walk the Line,” is a biography of Johnny Cash and how he goes through his life’s ups and downs, losing his brother, using drugs, going through withdrawals and hurting his family emotionally and making it big with his singing career. Eventually things change for the better. He realizes what he is doing is wrong. There are a lot of drug use shown and the film deals with his withdrawals. Although this is a very good movie about Cash, the drug use prevents us from awarding the film our Dove Seal.
