Katherine Roll 3/15/06 “Walk the Line” and Family Life I chose to watch the movie “Walk the Line,” which was released in 2005, because it is a musical biography of Johnny Cash and I enjoy listening to Johnny Cash’s music. I would rate “Walk the Line” as a good movie. It depicts well Johnny Cash’s rise to musical stardom, his battle with alcohol and drug abuse, and the toll of his addiction and the frequent touring on his family life. The main focus of the film is the love story between Johnny Cash and June Carter, the country singer who sustains him through his dark, self-destructive hours. Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon give great performances as Johnny Cash and June Carter, respectively. Phoenix, although he does not look much like Johnny Cash and does not have Cash’s distinctive, booming low voice, plays his role convincingly. The movie is entertaining, well scripted, and has nice sets and costumes. It is, however, too long (over two hours), focuses too much on June’s refusal to marry Johnny, and is somewhat choppy in its early scenes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
