英文导读

Walk the Line is a 2005 American biographical drama film directed by James Mangold and based on the early life and career of country music artist Johnny Cash. The film stars Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Robert Patrick.

James Mangold's Walk the Line tells the life story of country music legend Johnny Cash (Joaquin Phoenix), focusing primarily on the long courtship he had with June Carter (Reese Witherspoon). The film is structured as an extended flashback opening with Cash readying to take the stage at his historic Folsom Prison Concert. The film touches on his childhood, relating a horrific early incident from his life and establishing the troubled relationship he would have with his father (Robert Patrick). Cash joins the military and leaves home. During his time in the armed services he begins writing songs and romances a hometown girl (Ginnifer Goodwin). After the end of his duty he settles down and attempts to begin a music career, but his wife has trouble adjusting to his dreams. Cash auditions for Sam Phillips (Dallas Roberts), signs to Sun Records, and soon finds himself on tour with a roster of young soon-to-be legends that includes Elvis Presley (Tyler Hilton) and Jerry Lee Lewis (Waylon Malloy Payne). On this tour he meets June Carter, the daughter of the famous Carter family, and they take a liking to each other, although she refuses any serious advances from him. Cash gains world-wide fame thanks in part to the inspiration he gets from June, but eventually his marriage crumbles and he develops a serious drug addiction. The film is based on Cash's autobiographies. Phoenix and Witherspoon performed all of their own singing in the movie, just as Sissy Spacek and Beverly D'Angelo did in Coal Miner's Daughter a quarter-century before.

Walk the Line was released on November 18, 2005 in 2,961 theaters, grossing $22.3 million on its opening weekend. It went on to earn $119.5 million in North America and $66.9 million in the rest of the world for a total of $186.4 million, well above its $28 million budget making it a box office success.

The film was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Actor (Joaquin Phoenix), Best Actress (Reese Witherspoon), and Best Costume Design (Arianne Phillips).

剧情简介

约翰·卡什(杰昆·菲尼克斯 饰)本是个美国阿肯色州乡村小子,儿时的一场意外,夺去了他弟弟的生命。从此,他便活在父亲(罗伯特·帕特里克 饰)的谴责和嘲讽下,不得翻身。

热爱音乐的他,慢慢以乡村歌手的身份成名,建立了自己的家庭。但在外出巡演时,他染上了毒品,不能自拔,毒品将他带入深渊。

妻子薇薇安(詹妮弗·古德温饰)带着孩子离开了他,他只好去找心仪已久、但因婚姻暂时无法在一起的女歌手琼·卡特(莉丝·威瑟斯彭饰)。卡特给予了他很大的支持,并且努力帮助他戒毒。但是,在感情方面,卡特却一次次地拒绝他的求爱。最后,戒毒成功的卡什得以重启事业,和卡特的爱情也终成正果。

制作花絮

早在1997年拍摄《警察帝国》时,导演曼高德就已经萌发拍摄本片的想法,并告知了自己的妻子兼制片人凯茜·康拉德,两人经过商议找到了卡什的好友詹姆斯·基彻,三人很快就开始着手于这部关于卡什的电影。

曼高德与编剧吉尔·丹尼斯着手该片剧本的同时,还在查阅卡什曾经出版过的两本自传,分别为1986年的《黑衣人》和1997年的《现金自传》,而且两人开始仔细地研读卡什和琼的歌曲,不遗余力的在世界上的每个角落搜寻卡什早年录制的唱片,这些唱片不仅因年代久远而稀有,同时也是窥探当时卡什思想和情感的窗口。
