I found this movie to be inspiring
16 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am 34 years old and was born and raised in Hopkins Co. Kentucky.. right next to Muhlenberg. I just watched this movie and found it to be very inspirational. It really hit home for me.. literally. I hope others find it so as well. I have always liked Johnny Cash's music, but I hadn't seen him as an actor until now. I am going to be volunteering to help in the literacy program in my area. I see things in a whole new light after watching this movie. I'm damn proud to be from Kentucky. I feel sorry for people who judge a book by it's cover and I hope to make a difference in the lives of others myself. God Bless.. I know He sure has blessed me. MSHC
