The story of the country-western singer Hank Williams, who in his brief life created one of the greatest bodies of work in American music. The film chronicles his rise to fame and its tragic effect on his health and personal life.
After falling miserably on the set of their first 'talkie' Mary Pickford (America's sweetheart) and Louise Brooks (the vamp) vow never to another film again. Out of work and past their prime, they become roommates in Brooklyn. Stuck in her role as America's sweetheart, and both of them still living as though in a silent film, Mary's resentment of Louise's antics goes politely unspoken until, threatened with the loss of her one true love, Mary must face her fears and expose the rusty, unused voice inside her if she is ever to get what she wants.Written by
