Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen do an excellent job portraying music legend Hank Williams and his wife, bringing life to the characters and the songs. Similar to "I Walk the Line", the film focuses on the relationship between Williams and his wife and the toll taken on it as he becomes a star, with each of the actors actually singing all of the songs in the film. My only complaint is that the final days of Williams short life (he died at 29) are glossed over because the details of his last road trip tour are fascinating.
The story of the country-western singer Hank Williams, who in his brief life created one of the greatest bodies of work in American music. The film chronicles his rise to fame and its tragic effect on his health and personal life.
