Storyline

November 22, 1963. President John F. Kennedy has just been assassinated and Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson is now President. One of his first acts as President is to reaffirm the US government's intention to pass the Civil Rights Act. This Act was drafted while JFK was in office and gives people of all races the same rights, including voting rights, access to education and access to public facilities. However, he faces strong opposition to the bill, especially from within his own party. He will have to use all his political will and cunning to get it through. Written by grantss

A career-defining performance from Bryan Cranston.
13 July 2016 | by MOscarbradleySee all my reviews

Looking every inch the physical personification of the character he's playing Bryan Cranston gives a magnificent, career-defining performance as LBJ in Jay Roach's superb television movie "All the Way" which deals with Johnson's first year in office and the problems he encountered when dealing with civil rights as well as his own campaign for re-election. In the role of Martin Luther King, Anthony Mackie is a tad too cool, (Mackie's blandness as an actor is certainly in evidence), but Melissa Leo is a highly credible Ladybird, Frank Langella a superb Richard Russell and Stephen Root a perfect J. Edgar Hoover. The brilliant script is by Robert Schenkkan from his own play.
