Editorial Reviews

June Carter Cash wrote Johnny Cash's most famous song, "Ring of Fire," while she was falling in love with the fascinating and difficult musician who was the love of her life. RING OF FIRE will take us inside that volatile relationship, as seen through the eyes of their son, John, as well as profiling the woman who patiently supported one of country music's biggest stars even as she found her own idiosyncratic path to stardom. A born performer, she was part of country music's royal family, the Carter Family, whose music was heard all over America. Later, she and Cash performed together onstage together and lived the high life, maintaining their lifelong bond and a semblance of a home life for their son, through good times and bad, largely due to the strength and perseverance of June's great love. RING OF FIRE will take us beyond the portrayal of June as she was seen in WALK THE LINE, giving us more of her own colorful family history, her famous sense of humor, and her pioneering role as one of the first ladies of country music.

Considering that the June Carter biopic "Ring of Fire" was a Lifetime Original Movie, I didn't have particularly high expectations. The network is best known for its lurid "ripped from the headlines" recreations of notorious crimes or its standard "woman in peril" thrillers. It's always nice to see them strive for something a bit more noteworthy! Coming up with the right balance in a dramatized biography can be a tricky proposition. Someone's life is far too complex to be covered with any depth in a ninety minute presentation. Director Allison Anders and screenwriter Richard Friedenberg do a nice job in conveying the essence of June Carter with the material they've chosen to include in "Ring of Fire." Yes, the movie is episodic and skips enormous chunks of Carter's life. But what it does provide is a solid entertainment. The performances are good, the emotions heartfelt, and the soundtrack is peppered with lots of recognizable music. So while this isn't going to be the definitive word on Miss June Carter Cash, it is heads and tails above traditional Lifetime fare.

The movie opens with June as a youth. As a child, she suffered from stage fright and insecurity in performing. But she liked the adulation, and soon discovered her calling with a quick wit and a playful sass. We don't get too much of the grown June (now played by singer Jewel Kilcher) as an independent woman. Her first failed relationships get relatively minor play as the movie attempts to get to ole Johnny Cash (Matt Ross) as soon as possible. Kilcher and Ross display an easy chemistry in both the good times and the bad. As they unite, it is sweet and flirtatious. But Cash is a challenge, to say the least, and the courtship through the marriage include a fair share of tumult.

"I fell for you like a child, oh but the fire went wild." June Carter (Jewel) is a member of country musics most famous family. After two failed marriages and a succesful music career she finally gives in and marries country's bad boy, Johnny Cash (Ross). She then starts her new life singing, playing, raising kids and trying to keep Johnny clean. Some prove more difficult then others. Just about everyone know the story of these two icons. I am a huge Johnny Cash fan and even though this was a Lifetime movie I was still looking forward to seeing it. I do have to admit that Jewel did a pretty good job of playing June in this but no where close to how good Reese Witherspoon was. As far as the guy playing Johnny Cash...it would have been hard to even come close to Joaquin Phoenix but this guy was just bad. His acting was OK, but he looked and sounded nothing like him. In fact the whole movie I thought the guy looks more like Merle Haggard then Johnny Cash. As far as the actual movie "Walk The Line" dealt with Cash's drug problems fairly harsh but also had the music mixed in. This movie is more of a bio-pic of June Carter, but it's pretty much her helping Johnny get sober over and over. I know it's Lifetime and it does show how strong June was, but after the third scene of her telling Johnny he has to stop it becomes very repetitive and really starts to lose some of the emotion. Do not be like me and go in expecting a Johnny Cash movie with music, that's not what this is. Overall, Jewel does a good job but this is nothing like I expected. I give it a B-.
