I SAW THE LIGHT

DIRECTOR: Marc Abraham - UNITED STATES

British actor Tom Hiddleston inhabits the role of legendary singer/songwriter Hank Williams, an artist who revolutionized country music with his raw charisma, haunting voice, and original songs. While ?I Saw the Light showcases Williams’ meteoric rise to fame and fortune, it also reveals the dark and troubled life that existed away from the spotlight. From the drug and alcohol addictions to troubled relationships to the string of broken hearts he left in his wake, it was Hank Williams’ tumultuous existence that not only fueled his powerful lyrics and heartfelt songs, but also brought his life to its tragically short end. Elizabeth Olsen shines as William’s wife Audrey and Hiddleston performs William’s classic hits with conviction. (123 mins.)

Sponsored by Hotel Eastlund.

Filmography: Flash of Genius (2008)
