Jewel takes on the role of country music legend June Carter Cash in Lifetime's original movie Ring of Fire. It's not the first time the icon has been brought to life on the screen. Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar for her portrayal in 2005's Walk the Line, but that movie centered more on the life of her husband, Johnny Cash. Photos: A-Listers Angle to Play Music's Biggest Icons Ring of Fire, meanwhile, tells June's story from her point of view (it's based on the book Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash, written by her son,

Writer-Director Jeff Nichols’s latest film Mud is a coming of age tale that combines the country brashness of Huck Finn with the grand adventure of Stand By Me, and adds the ability to capture a rustic subculture similar to Beasts of the Southern Wild. All these different elements come together to tell a deeply personal tale of the complexities of life, love, and the bitter sweetness of growing old. This modern fable brings you deep into the makings of its character to provide a unique prospective to this naturalistic world. Nearly every performance has an impeccable sense of authenticity. Much of the story rest on the shoulders of the film’s two young leads, and they carry that weight with a »

Memorial Day is on Monday, and the holiday is not just for barbecues and picnics, but also a time to honor the men and women who have served our country. Many of our favorite stars have a special tie to the day, since they grew up with a parent who served. Jessica Alba's father was in the Us Air Force, while Christina Aguilera hails from an Army family. Reese Witherspoon is the daughter of a lieutenant colonel from the Us Army Reserve, and Bruce Willis is the son of a former Us soldier as well. In honor of the day of remembrance, we are taking a look at all the stars who come from military families. View Slideshow › »

The mother of three posted a cute caption next to her pic, saying, "My summer garden is coming in. So excited! #summertime." Dinners at the Witherspoon household are sure to be delish this season! Hey now—where is our invite?! »
After the glossy and faintly implausible Oscar-bait picture, The Descendants, director Alexander Payne has returned to a more natural and personal movie language for his new film in the Cannes competition. Nebraska is a bittersweet road movie starring Bruce Dern and Will Forte as Woody and David, an elderly father and middle-aged son taking an uncomfortable road trip together. Their story is laced with pathos, comedy and regret, recalling the classic indie cinema of Hal Ashby and Bob Rafelson. It is shot, with almost Amish austerity in monochrome, which gives a wintry, end-of-the-world drear to that homely roadside Americana that Payne loves to pick out with his camera.
Nebraska may not be startlingly new, and sometimes we can see the epiphanies looming up over the distant horizon; the tone is, »

Orange you glad to see that stunning smile? Reese Witherspoon stepped out for a shopping trip on Wednesday looking very cheerful! The back-to-blond star flashed her signature grin while shopping at Whole Foods in Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

She also picked up a bouquet of cheerful yellow tulips—who could be in a bad mood carrying spring flowers? The actress isn't letting her recent brush with the law get her down—following her arrest and public apology, Reese has hopped right back into her »

The enduring and oft-tortured romance and marriage of Johnny Cash and the Carter Family’s June Carter Cash continues to provide compelling cinematic subject matter. The latest incarnation of the country music saga reaches the small screen May 27, when Lifetime airs director Allison Anders’ new take on the story, “Ring of Fire.” The pic had its premiere screening Tuesday night as part of the Grammy Museum’s “Reel to Reel” film series.
The telepic covers some of the same ground as James Mangold’s 2005 biopic “Walk the Line.” Matt Ross (“American Horror Story”) essays Johnny Cash this time around, but – it being a Lifetime production – the film focuses on June Carter Cash and her long-running struggle to keep her pill-addicted partner straight. Taking her first major screen role since Ang Lee’s 1999 feature “Ride With the Devil,” pop/country singer Jewel portrays Carter Cash from the ages of 22 to 72.

Those fascinated, angered and equally disturbed by Bruce Sinofsky and Joe Berlinger’s acclaimed trio of Paradise Lost documentaries, as well as Amy Berg’s recent West Of Memphis, may be intrigued to see how fact-based crime biopic Devil’S Knot plays out. The film, directed by Atom Egoyan, is based on the same-titled book by Mara Leveritt, centring on the harrowing case of the three young boys murdered in Arkansas, 1993 and the subsequent controversial incarceration of the West Memphis Three (Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley Jr.).
The official first image of the true-crime thriller features Reese Witherspoon as Pam Hobbs, the mother of Steve Branch (who was one of the three children so brutally butchered) alongside Alessandro Nivola as Terry Hobbs, her husband and Steve’s stepfather.
