I Saw the Light (2015) Tom Hiddleston – Movie Reviews

Play episode

Tom Hiddleston stars as country music legend Hiram King “Hank” Williams in this biopic on his short life, several loves, and his influential career, crafting such classics as “Hey Good Lookin'”, “Move It On Over”, and the posthumously released gem, “Your Cheatin' Heart”.  Starting with quickie marriage to first wife Audrey Mae Sheppard at the age of 21, Williams and his band would start their career off playing for local radio, where he ended up not lasting long due to butting heads with the staff, leading him to take his show on the road.  He eventually lands a recording contract, where he would become a national sensation, making him in high demand as he would dour throughout the late 1940s and the 1950s.  But with success comes a dark side, fueled by alcoholism, womanizing, chronic spina bifida and a failing marriage.
