The Last Ride Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Henry Thomas stars as country-music icon Hank Williams in this biographical drama set during the last week of the singer/songwriter's life, when he finally succumbed to the many demons that plagued him. A living legend whose quick temper and hard drinking had nearly destroyed his life and career by 1952, Williams booked a pair of New Year's concerts that were intended as his big comeback. The shows were set to be performed in West Virginia and Ohio, and determined to get there on time, Williams hired a young college student as his driver. Despite Williams's fame, the naïve wheelman had no idea of his passenger's true identity. Meanwhile, as the mismatched pair navigated the winding Appalachian roads en route to a gig that was never meant to be, one of the greatest chapters in the history of country music was about to come to a sudden and tragic end. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
