Synopsis: Four-time Emmy(R)-winner Bryan Cranston (‘Breaking Bad‘) delivers a tour-de-force performance as Lyndon B. Johnson in this riveting HBO Films picture. Reprising his Tony(R)winning stage role, Cranston plays LBJ during his tumultuous first year in office as he stakes his presidency on an historic and unprecedented piece of human-rights legislation: the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
My Review: This is a Master Class in Acting by one of my favorite actors – Bryan Cranston. He did this role on Broadway in 2016. He is almost unrecognizable in makeup as LBJ. Can’t say enough good things about his performance. What struck me while watching is how the Ruling Class is not about helping other people, they are not idealogically-driven; they are motivated by the Power in telling others what to do. This is all a Chess game to move pieces around the board to win – to tell people what to do.
