Cinematic therapy, Vol. 2

Walk the Line
I have previously reviewed the Johnny Cash biopic that won Reese Witherspoon an Oscar. But it has quickly become a movie I’ll watch every time it’s on cable. Joaquin Phoenix can’t quite sing like the Man in Black but Reese’s June Carter wins you over. Destined to be a romantic classic, at least in my book, the film follows Johnny Cash from childhood to his heyday but mostly focuses on his deep friendship and eventual romance with June Carter. The bad boy and good girl flirt, argue, but mostly grow to depend on one another. The trust, understanding, and loyalty of their friendship, which endured both of their messy early marriages and Johnny’s drug addiction, is inspiring.
