This is the story of the musical Carter and Cash families, the dynasty at the heart of American roots music. Starting with the original Carter family, A.P., Sara and Maybelle, this film traces the flow of their influence through generations of musicians, the transformation of that act into the Carter Sisters and Mother Maybelle, the marriage of Johnny Cash and June Carter, and the efforts of the present-day family to keep this musical legacy alive.

I didn't know much about the Carter family before seeing this documentary. I learned a lot about their history and amazing legacy, and I enjoyed the movie. The filmmakers had to be creative to make up for a lack of film footage of the Carters, animating photographs at times. My one criticism relates to its occasional use of text, rather than narration, to tell various things. I certainly don't mind having to read, but in this case I felt it interrupted the flow of the movie.
