A story about former Alabama governor George Wallace, whose views on racial segregation put him against the US government and at the forefront opposing the Civil Rights Movement. Mainly set from 1955 to 1972 with flashbacks, it tells the story of this governor, said to be in the USA, 'the greatest political loser of all time', having stood for the US presidency four times and losing each time. And how loss, pain and suffering would eventually lead him to renounce what he once stood for. Written by
When Wallace is about to appear on stage at Harvard, the wide view (possibly actual footage?) shows the curtain opening with a hand up at about chest level and another person ducking out towards the left (of the picture). In the close-up of him though, the hand is much farther down and the second person is not to be seen. See more »
Angelina Jolie's breakout performance - a star of the future.
She steals every scene she is in and oozes sensuality all over the screen. Mark my words - she will be a major star and actress of the next decade. He also gives a powerhouse performance of a controversial historical figure. John Frankenheimer directs the movie with a knowing and sure hand. Fascinating and informative movie of a pivotal moment in America's history and the relation of the races.
