Walk the Line isn't one of my all-time favorite films, but I enjoy it. I enjoy Joaquin Phoenix's performance as Johnny Cash, and I enjoy Reese Witherspoon's performance as June Carter (Cash). Joaquin and Reese had a lot of chemistry, and that helped sell the movie and their individual performances as those two iconic country stars. Even though neither of them was a "perfect fit" for those roles, it really worked, and both were nominated for awards across the board, with Reese even taking home the Best Actress Oscar. My point is that even though the film is far from perfect, I like it . . .
