Walk The Line (2005, PG13) Please join us on Monday Night, October 21 at 7:00 p.m. in the main room at the Community Center as we present this multiple award winning cinematic look at a true American icon, singer Johnny Cash. Directed by James Mangold, the film is based on Cash’s own two autobiographies and traces his life from his early days growing up on a farm in Arkansas, to his early recording career at Sun Records, working with stars like Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis, through his evolution into a musician whose artistry both defined country music and defied such limiting classification. And, of course, the film revolves around Cash’s sometimes rocky relationship with the love of his life, June Carter Cash. The performances are wonderful – Joaquin Phoenix won rave reviews for his portrayal of Cash, and Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar as June. And then there’s the music–which is simply classic!
