Tom Hiddleston gets into the shoes of country legend Hank Williams, the musician who wrote one of the most eternal songs of the genre before his premature death at the age of 29. The film goes from his humble origins to his rise to stardom.
“Those old songs are my lexicon and prayer book. All my beliefs come out of those old songs, literally, anything from ‘Let Me Rest on That Peaceful Mountain’ to ‘Keep on the Sunny Side.’ You can find all my philosophy in those old songs. I believe in a God of time and space, but if people ask me about that, my impulse is to point them back toward those songs. I believe in Hank Williams singing ‘I Saw the Light.’ I’ve seen the light, too.” Dead at 29, Williams was a legend of country music that fought hand-to-hand with Woody Guthrie in being the sensitive, outlaw, mythical basis for a certain American sensibility. In this biopic, Tom Hiddleston (that lovable, tall reptilian) wears the artists as though he were an old but invincible guitar. JMD
