Phoenix embodies The Man in Black, warts and all in this excellent biopic showing Johnny Cash's family strife, rise as an early 50s rock star, through his battle with drugs, and his long courtship of June Carter (an equally brilliant Witherspoon). Script and actors never shy away from the more disturbing aspects of Cash's personality and life, which makes for a powerful, if not always comfortable, film. Phoenix and Witherspoon did all their own singing, and they do it well enough to make you wonder if it's the real thing.
