LBJ: Directed by Rob Reiner. With Woody Harrelson, Michael Stahl-David, Richard Jenkins, Jennifer Jason Leigh. Lyndon B. Johnson aligns himself with John F. Kennedy, rises to the Presidency, and deals with the civil rights struggles of the 1960s.

“Always enjoy movies of history and political ones and this latest u0026quot;LBJu0026quot; is one good look at the past president from west Texas. It shows that Lyndon Johnson was a man of faith and courage despite what the no doubters and others thought of him. Johnson(Woody Harrelson) is shown as a senator whou0026#39;s taken a back seat to many as heu0026#39;s a southern democrat, yet things change when president Kennedy asks him to be his running mate and vice presidential candidate in 1960 and upon election, Lyndon still gets a cold shoulder from Kennedy brother Bobby and other northern democrats.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYet all of that changes as Johnson is thrown into the spotlight and becomes president after president Kennedy is hit and killed with an assassinu0026#39;s bullet in Dallas in 1963. Oh Lyndon has come along way from west Texas to the white house. Along the way doubt and indifference is found even from his own party, yet Johnson thru hard work determination and political back room workings gets the landmark Civil Rights Act passed in 1964.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall good film thatu0026#39;s a historical and political look at a great figure a president that was for the people and their rights and a society changer even when it wasnu0026#39;t popular or it didnu0026#39;t seem the norm. u0026quot;LBJu0026quot; is one picture to watch for historical and political social reasons.”
