All the Way
Docudrama | English | 132 minutes
After the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson becomes President of the United States. With the assistance of his wife Lady Bird, and the influence of Martin Luther King Jr., Johnson is fiercely determined to pass the Civil Rights Act before the next election. Southern Democrats like Richard Russell of Georgia attempt to add amendments to weaken the Act. Johnson overcomes a filibuster and the Act is passed. In the 1964 presidential election, despite losing the support of the Southern states, Johnson beats Goldwater in a landslide. Johnson’s major failure, the one that literally broke his heart, was Vietnam.

What do you say we take up a collection and send every one of those clowns in Congress to ALL THE WAY, a jaw-dropping political drama about President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Herculean efforts (and pyrrhic sacrifices) to get the Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed.
ALL THE WAY never drags. Bryan Cranston should clear some more mantle space for a future Emmy and Golden Globe to sit next to the Tony he won for this role.
