Walk The Line.
Well guys, today's post it's a movie =)
This one is about Johnny Cash, an American singer, well known around the world...
I was really ignorant about his life and his music (I only knew him by the name), but while I was seeing this movie, i got caught by it... So I have to say it's a VERY interesting movie... You definitely have to check it!
SYNOPSIS:The story begins in Arkansas in the era of the Great Depression, when the film traces the origin of the sound of Johnny Cash (Joaquin Phoenix), dating back to its beginnings as the son of a sharecropper, then going by his wild tours with the pioneers rock and roll, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and Waylon Jennings, and culminates in his unforgettable 1968 concert in Folsom Prison. Cash became the hottest artist of the moment, selling even more than the Beatles. "Walk the Line" tells the birth of a new kind of American singer who has to overcome brutal episodes of anger, the ravages of addiction and the temptations of stardom to discover the voice that would make him a hero to generations of fans . Those early years contain themes that permeate the music and minimalist style of Cash: death, love, betrayal, sin, hope and faith.
