Great film about President Lyndon Johnson


All the way is a brilliant film about the first year of Lyndon Baines Johnson’s presidency, from just after the assassination of JFK until the re-election of LBJ.

Bryan Cranston is great as the irascible and passionate president. The film particularly shows how he was the ultimate Capitol Hill fixer – particularly as he gets the Civil Rights Act through despite stiff opposition from Southern Democrats.

This is definitely worth a watch – and you can do so via Sky Atlantic for the next few days.
