I Saw the Light

I Saw the Light tells the story of the iconic Hank Williams, whose rise to stardom in the 1940s would influence countless artists across many genres and whose early death in 1953 remains one of the most notable all-too-early losses in music history. Hank Williams (Tom Hiddleston) marries Audrey (Elizabeth Olsen). He's a singer, and he has dreams of performing at the Grand Ole Opry. But he's brash and doesn't want to jump through the hoops necessary to make it onto that stage. But he persists, and even as his wife's occasional singing drags the band down, Hank breaks through with top hits that land him at the top of the world. But his life is far from perfect. Physical pain, alcoholism, addiction, and mental instability keep him from being the man he needs to be to sustain his personal life and career success, putting him down the path of a dark road from which he may never escape.
