Did You Know?

Trivia

Even though they'd both known each other for years, Director Rob Reiner never actually met Jennifer Jason Leigh in the flesh during this shoot because she arrived each day on the set already in make-up and costume as Lady Bird Johnson. Not until the film wrapped and they shared a flight home, did Rob have the opportunity to re-engage with Jennifer in an informal setting. See more »

Goofs

Nov. 23, 1963 was a rainy day in DC. Kennedy's Oval Office furnishings were removed in the rain. The depictions of a bright, sunny day, seen through the windows, is an error. See more »

Quotes

Lady Bird Johnson: Do you know why I married you? I had other offers, but I chose you. Do you know why?
Lyndon B. Johnson: I have no earthly idea.
Lady Bird Johnson: Because you asked.

Woody Harrelson completely disappears into the role of LBJ.

Great acting. A good inside look at LBJ and the aftermath of JFK's assassination, especially for those not alive when it happened.

Worth a rental.
