Powerful performance by Michael Gambon as President Lyndon B. Johnson. Gripping movie. I don't give five star ratings very often, but this movie deserved 5 stars. It gave a lot of insight as to what goes on behind the scenes of the American government.

A very interesting film for students of history. Shows the Vietnam War from the perspective of the Johnson administration, a very interesting angle to see it from.
