(PG-13) This biopic of legendary but troubled country music star Johnny Cash (Joaquin Phoenix) focuses on his decades-long relationship with singer and muse June Carter (Reese Witherspoon).

· THE WORLD'S FASTEST INDIAN 2 stars. (PG-13) Middle-of-nowhere New Zealander Burt Munro (a feisty Anthony Hopkins) aspires to set a land-speed record on his antique, jerry-rigged motorcycle in this heavily clichéd biopic. Once Munro reaches the competition at Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats, the film finds some sharp conflicts: Burt's relentless, follow-your-dream platitudes begin to sound genuinely suicidal. Up until that point, though, Indian putters along with its tame portrait of a small-town eccentric, followed by a drowsy "What a country!" American road trip. -- Holman
