Genre: Drama, musical

This is the story about the singer Johnny Cash from his early days in an Arkansas farm to his rise to fame with Sun Records in Memphis. When he grows up, he joins up the army and he is sent to Alemania. When he is twenty two years old he returns to America and stays in Memphis. There he gets married with his girlfriend and starts his musical career, first with gospel music and then he changes to country music where he hilights his powerful voice.
When he starts doing concerts, he meets a singer who he has always admired, June Carter. The distance with his wife takes him to fall in love with her.
During the sixties his success leads him to the drinks and drugs, but June helps him to leave it.
Finally they get married, but they have to go over a lot of problems, and walk the line.
In my opionion, it is a fantastic movie because it has a little bit of everything, it is funny, emotional and romantic.
