Walk The Line
What they said. Briefly? Everyone loves a Christ story at Christmastime. Also, when folks tell you that you that you can't take your eyes off of Reese Witherspoon, it's not simply because she's breathtakingly beautiful or inordinately talented: the tight focus on her face leaves no alternative. If you've seen one biopic then you know too well the strict adherence to Great Man thesis which wouldn't be complete without messianic hagiography. To their credit, both leads are believable as Cash and June Carter, but that isn't enough to cover for a gauzy gloss on The Man in Black.
But a film like this begs the question: has a celebrity ever lived an irredeemable life?
