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
George Wallace is a wonderful piece of cinema portraying the life of the politician who became Governor of the state of Alabama. The film starts with a campaign and ends with repentance, showing how suffering can change a man. Intertwined with news features from the time and capturing moments like the Selma march and Martin Luther King and his "dream" speech, the film portrays life in this turbulent period of American history to perfection. For lovers of political dramas this is an excellent film, starring the excellent Gary Sinise as Wallace for which he won an Emmy and directed by John Frankenheimer. The film also stars Angelina Jolie and Joe Don Baker.
