That movie is good. After reading this, maybe there could have been more tribute to his conversion. But it would need to be real and raw just like the rest of the movie. There was a hint of his conversion in that his behavior changed and he finally went to church with June. The movie focused on June being his reason for change and her tough love may have forced him to deal with his sin. I love the movie and I love Johnny Cash. He was a complicated man.
The country church in the movie is in my neighbor hood in Covington Tn. Lots of my neighbors were extras.
