This is the film about the legendary musician Johnny Cash and his lifelong love of June Carter. Rock Legend Cash became known as The Man in Black, a name that symbolizes both his music and lifestyle. He was the rebel who never managed to escape his demons or his own melancholy, which was reflected in his music. The only thing that ever made him really close to each June.

Just watch the extended versions of the songs on Disc 2, particularly Reese in "Juke Box Blues", it seems she has completely forgotten who she is, she is just living June Carter, also the great duet of them singing "Jackson".
Phoenix becomes Johnny Cash, he doesn't act or mimic him, he is him, watching his performance you can actually see a comment made in one of the extras that Cash "was the most haunted man I have ever met".
This is no romantic biopic, it is a gritty slice of real life, the lives of Johnny Cash and June Carter.
The extras on Disc 2 are every bit as good as the film in their different way, and the extended songs stand up as an album on their own. Buy, but make sure you BUY THE TWO DISC VERSION.
I really enjoyed the songs in the movie a lot; I was especially impressed that Phoenix and Witherspoon did their own singing and playing and made it look so easy. Phoenix's Johnny is a tortured and self-destructive soul, and Witherspoon's June is spunky and smart. They have great romantic chemistry on-screen and their close-ups are intense! The supporting cast is uniformly excellent, especially Robert Patrick as Johnny's mean and unrepentant father. "Walk the Line" is an entertaining bio pic with infectious music and two very likeable stars.
We went back again after the first showing. It is a 'love story' but a very real and gritty story.
Joaquin Pheonix is more than believeable playing the complicated man in black, and his renditions of Cash's songs are astounding.
Watching Reese Witherspoon in action as June Carter is a treat, and it's easy to see why she earned her Oscar.
Watch out for a passionate performance by Robert Patrick as Johnny's hard liner father.
Altogether a must see film!
The film is topped and tailed by Johnny Cash's performance at the Folsom Prison in the early part of the 60's. In between these two scenes, we are shown the main story of Cash's childhood upbringing, his reaction when his brother dies in a freak accident, his leaving home to start on a singing career, get in trouble with women relationships and drugs, up to the moment when he meets and falls in love with June Carter who does her painstaking best to get him off the drugs and to clean his act up.
There are some stunning and memorable scenes throughout this beautifully realised film and there are some powerful scenes too like the one where we see Johnny Cash collapse on stage from a drug overdose. I felt that this scene was filmed brilliantly. I also felt that the performances from the two lead actors, Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon, were career defining performances and they had never been so watchable on screen as they do here.
Joaquin Phoenix gives Johnny Cash a ruggish and rebel look and he makes Cash someone to relate to and gain some sort of inspiration from. Phoenix, on the whole, is completely at one with Cash throughout the entire film. It's the best part I've seen him play on screen. Reese Witherspoon is utterly believable as June Carter and her performance is breathtaking. I think that these two performances were two of the highlights of the film calendar last year.Read more ›
I went to this movie only because of the good reviews it received.
The movie follows the average Hollywood biopic formula:
Sounds so bad so far, but wrong.
This is a superb movie.
Superbly written and sublimely performed.
Phoenix is good in the lead role, Witherspoon is outstanding in support.
This movie gave me a new appreciation of the music.
The song "Walk The Line" meant nothing to me before, now I see it as one of the great love songs.
This movie has faults, it may not be 100% accurate, but certainly deserves all the good reviews it has received and the awards it surely will receive.
See it, it's worth it.
