Synopsis by Daniel Gelb

Tom Hiddleston stars as country-music legend Hank Williams in this biopic about the performer's rise to stardom and tragic death at the age of 29. During his fascinating life -- from his youthful marriage to aspiring singer Audrey Mae Sheppard (Elizabeth Olsen) to his stint on a weekly radio show in Alabama to his residency at the Grand Ole Opry -- Williams struggles with alcoholism and addiction. I Saw the Light received its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
