Entertaining and uplifting story about our 36th president showing courage in the face of tragedy.
2 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Really great film with stellar direction and acting.

The nice thing is that it manages to balance being entertaining and funny with the more dramatic and serious moments. It sort of evolves from one movie to another as the story goes on.

Great performance from Harrelson, but the entire supporting cast were all incredible.

Whether you know the story of LBJ or not, this isn't just a dry history lesson. I learned a lot and was thoroughly entertained!
