It takes in his young days in West Texas up to the White House, and centres on the political upheaval when the Vice President Johnson was forced into the limelight. With political battles on both sides of the aisle, Johnson struggles to heal a nation and secure his presidency by passing Kennedy’s historic Civil Rights Act.
LBJ is released in the US on November 3rd, but as of yet there’s no UK date. I am looking forward to it, however.
