Negative reviews may have pushed back “I Saw the Light” from its awards-friendly November release date to March 25, 2016, but they aren’t stopping Sony Pictures Classics from putting together a well-edited and emotionally effective debut trailer.
Starring Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, “I Saw the Light” is a biopic centered around country superstar Hank Williams, one of the most prolific songwriters of all time, who rose to fame and died at the age of 29 after years of substance abuse. The film marks the second feature from director Marc Abraham and features Hiddleston performing all of his own musical numbers. The actor learned how to play the guitar exclusively for the role.
