Original Title:

My Father And The Man In Black

After music manager Saul Holiff committed suicide, estranged son Jonathan found an audio diary in the memorabilia accumulated while keeping Johnny Cash walking the line. The reconstructions of key incidents are clunky, but the showbiz and domestic sagas are compelling.

Slightly jerry-built reconstructions detract from an intriguing film with a unique angle on the country legend.
