    Synopsis


    I Saw the Light
    Tom Hiddleston stars as country-music legend Hank Williams in this biopic about the performer's rise to stardom and tragic death at the age of 29. During his fascinating life -- from his youthful marriage to aspiring singer Audrey Mae Sheppard (Elizabeth Olsen) to his stint on a weekly radio show in Alabama to his residency at the Grand Ole Opry -- Williams struggles with alcoholism and addiction. I Saw the Light received its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

      This movie was all over the place. I felt like it went by way too fast, they just put in what they thought were important bits of Hank's life on a screen. Didn't get real sense of who he really was. The actors did a great job, but not enough to save the movie. I would recommend only if you were a super big fan of the actors' or Hank.

      It is strange that a man from England can play a country singer with a twang, but Tom Hiddleston did a fine good job of it. If you like Hank Williams, you should watch this!

      This was the very best movie about singer Hank Williams I've ever seen. Even though he is a Brtish actor, his portrayal of Hank Williams was spot on. He even did the actual singing of Hank Williams songs even though you would think it was Hank himself.

      Tom Hiddleston was fantastic in this role. I saw quite a lot of negative reviews on-line before viewing this but I decided to check it out anyway. If you are a big fan of Walk The Line and Ray like I am you will enjoy I Saw The Light.

      Hank Sr was an incredible influence on American music which eventually carried over to an influence on all music. A staple in country music and a realistic portrayal of the man and his influence. Impossible to duplicate his voice.

      I didn't think a british guy could play "ole hank", but Hiddleston did well. The story telling is where the movie loses some luster. But seeing and hearing the music is fun for sure.

      Gave a side of Hank Williams most people don't know...we know he was a heavy drinker, but the pain that came before and all through his life is heartbreaking. I am still a big fan.

      Excellent life story of the great Hank Williams. Music was fantastic, actors were great, totally entertaining. Even though we all know how it ends, It's a Must See movie.
