West Side Story Review 'Dazzling, & truly a throwback to old classic musicals/filmmaking'

Movie Review: I SAW THE LIGHT

RAMA is back at it again. It's more about Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen I SAW THE LIGHT is a performance-driven biopic. Tom Hiddleston transformed himself into the late great Hank Williams, and Elizabeth Olsen holds her ground, these two amazing talents burn the screen with such passion and ferocity. The film however is just textbook biopic, nothing that you haven’t already seen before. It’s well-intentioned but at the end of the day, Marc Abraham’s adaption is uninspired. I SAW THE LIGHT essentially is the story of the legendary country western singer Hank Williams, one all-time greats in American music. Starring Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, I SAW THE LIGHT chronicles Hank’s rise to fame which has tragic effect on his health and personal life.

First Clip From 'I Saw the Light' Starring Tom Hiddleston As Hank Williams

Tom Hiddleston as country music legend Hank Williams is a pretty enticing proposition. The Brit takes on the iconic role in Marc Abraham’s “ I Saw the Light ,” which is set for a world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this week. Hiddleston debuted the first clip from the film himself via Twitter. It features Williams at a 1947 recording session of “Move It on Over” before transitioning to life at home with wife Audrey Mae ( Elizabeth Olsen , who I hear is also exceptional in the film). Abraham is best known for his work as a producer on films such as “Bring It On,” “Spy Game” and “The Last Exorcism.” He’s seven years removed from his directorial debut, “Flash of Genius,” another biopic. Hiddleston can also be seen in Toronto selection “High-Rise” from director Ben Wheatley. He’ll be hitting theaters next month with Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak.” Watch the clip after the Jump... It gives me great pleasure to introduce the first clip from I SAW THE L
