Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston in I Saw the Light

The first full trailer for I Saw the Light has dropped and it's quite interesting. Tom Hiddleston stars as country music legend Hank Williams. Elizabeth Olsen stars as his long suffering wife, Audrey Mae. The film chronicles Williams' rise to fame and the toll it took on his marriage and family life.

Hiddleston sings in the trailer and he sounds fantastic. The film looks at Williams' dark side: he suffered from substance abuse and died young. In the trailer his wife accuses him of sleeping with another woman every night of the week while he's on tour. In the trailer Williams talks about why his fans love his music so much explaining, "Everybody has a little darkness in 'em. I'm talking about things like anger, sorrow, shame. I show it to them, and they hear it, and they don't have to take it home."

The film was written and directed by Marc Abraham (Children of Men). The film also stars David Krumholtz, Bradley Whitford, Cherry Jones, Josh Pais, and Maddie Hasson.It hits theaters on March 25, 2016. Take a look:
