Traces Johnny Cash's childhood, including his distant father to his early attempts at a music career. At this point in his life he marries his girlfriend Vivian. During a tour with singer/musicians Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis, he encounters singer June Carter, and his love for her, and her rejection of him through the years, spurs him into drugs, drinking, and depression.

July 6, 2014.....Ok, so I said I wouldn't watch another movie with Joaqin Pheonix, (after watching "The Master" and "Her,") but after reading the comments about this movie, and being a Johnny fan, (but not a fanatic!) I have to give this a go. It's waiting for me at the library, so I'll let you know how I feel about Joaqin after this!.......July 12, well I have to say, I was happy with Joaqin's performance in this movie, and the movie was just great overall. I didn't know much about Johnny Cash's life, just his music, and I remember watching his show when I was young. I'm going to look up a few books on him now, as I'm pretty sure the movie skipped a lot of stuff! I loved the proposal scene. That's pretty romantic stuff! I see I didn't know too much about June as well. I always pictured her as more of a ......? (Don't know what to say I thought she was, but not the strong minded kind of gal that she is portrayed as in the film. Must read up on her also!)

I heard it was good, and it is, but not that good.
FWIW, I am no fan of country music.

Just watched it for the second time in the last year. Terrific movie and you see the characters and music of Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly and, of course Johnny and June. An excellent musical history lesson.

Brilliantly scripted and acted biopic of 'The Man In Black'. Phoenix and Witherspoon's performances were extraordinary, and they deserve huge praise for their singing as well (and I'm not a fan of country music). (If you enjoy this, you might also like: "Ray", the Ray Charles life story.) FIVE STARS.

I didn't listen to Johnny Cash's music at all before watching this movie. Afterwards, I fell in love with 'The Man In Black' and now I can't live a day without listening to one of his Classics. This movie is really great.

Great film! Enjoyed how the film showed how Cas, Carter, Elvis, Jerry Lee and others started out...could make a seperate film alone about those times.
Witherspoon surprised me, I liked her in "Education", but the other stuff I've seen seemed like so much fluff. But here she was pretty amazing as June Carter..the music reminded me of when I was a kid of 5, the stuff my parents listened too.

Well-done and enjoyable. Enjoyed especially seeing Reese and Joaquin carry their tunes.
