Reviews:
"In Mark Abraham’s I SAW THE LIGHT, Tom Hiddleston puts in a performance as Williams that ranks with that of Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash in I WALK THE LINE. And Hiddleston gets to do it in a better movie. - 03/31/2016 Los Angeles Times


"[T]he British actor Tom Hiddleston delivers fine work as the troubled country music legend who died at just 29." - 03/30/2016 Chicago Sun-Times


"As Hank, Mr. Hiddleston leads with charm and a twang, keeping the beat with his shoulders, hips and feet. He looks as good as the movie..." - 03/24/2016 New York Times


"Hiddleston captures the festering darkness that lurked beneath Williams’ aw-shucks persona." - 04/18/2016 Empire
