Henry Thomas who you might better remember as Elliot from E.T. and Samuel from Legends of the Fall delivers an outstanding performance as Hank Williams. Perfect casting for that part. The low-budget of this film was very evident unfortunately, as the driving scenes looked similar to Saturday Night Live's Taxicab Confessions skit from the mid 90s,and the sound mixing is cringe-worthy with how bad it is, as was the music. Not enough money to pay for the Hank Williams songs, instead there are covers of those songs. This film is not a showcase of historical accuracy that's for sure, but it is a showcase of acting and Henry Thomas did an outstanding job. He made me believe that he was Hank Williams without ever singing, and the duo of he and actor Jesse James (Not West Coast Choppers) played off each other very well, and very naturally, and made for a very enjoyable, relaxed, and interesting movie drama. The little side story with Kaley Cuoco from 'Big Bang Theory' fame was completely unecessary however, and did nothing to help the film. In fact, quite the opposite. I wonder how much of the budget went to paying her?
