The final scene of "I Saw the Light," a biopic about folk legend Hank Williams, shows a packed theater on New Year's Day in 1953 . They're waiting for Hank to come out, but instead get a plainly distraught and uncomfortable man tasked with delivering a message that Hank Williams, age 29, died on the way to the concert. Williams belonged to the people, and that's made clear in this perfectly realized moment. It's the first time the movie even attempts to show Williams' impact outside of himself and make the audience understand why this man and his voice endures to this day. A biopic should be more interested in what made Williams extraordinary, not just the things that made him like everyone else.
