Bill Pullman

LBJ

After powerful Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson (Woody Harrelson)
loses the 1960 Democratic presidential nomination to Senator John F.
Kennedy (Jeffrey Donovan), he agrees to be his young rival’s running
mate. But once they win the election, despite his extensive legislative
experience and shrewd political instincts, Johnson finds himself
sidelined in the role of vice president. That all changes on Nov. 22,
1963, when Kennedy is assassinated and Johnson, with his devoted wife
Lady Bird (Jennifer Jason Leigh) by his side, is suddenly thrust into
the presidency. As the nation mourns, Johnson must contend with longtime
adversary Attorney General Bobby Kennedy (Michael Stahl-David) and
one-time mentor Georgia Senator Richard Russell (Richard Jenkins) as he
seeks to honor JFK’s legacy by championing the historic Civil Rights Act
of 1964.          ---Electric Entertainment
