Hank Williams, in his short life, created a body of work that will forever infuence and inform country and western music.
An ideal subject for a music biopic, Hank is played, convincingly and with great panache by Tom Hiddleston. Williams suffered from chronic back pain for most of his life resulting in a dependence on pills and alcohol that wrecked his marriage and marred his career.
I Saw The Light is a faithful recreation of his stellar but ultimately tragic life.
Stars: Tom Hiddleston, Elizabeth Olsen, Bradley Whitford
