One of Johnny Cash's children is fuming at the way her mother, Vivian Liberto Distin has been portrayed in Walk The Line:

Kathy Cash said the film's depiction of her mother, who died earlier this year, was "not true".

"My mom was basically a nonentity in the entire film except for the mad little psycho who hated his career," she said. "She loved his career and was proud of him until he started taking drugs and stopped coming home."

It's an interesting case, though, as John Carter Cash, son of Johnny's second marriage, admits the criticisms are valid:

"I'm compassionately understanding," he said. "The point of the film is my parents' love affair."

Likewise, Kathy doesn't let her dislike stop her from praising some of the performances. It's upsetment, but very balanced upset.
