"Woody Harrelson shines."
Stephanie Zacharek, Time.
After Lyndon B. Johnson (Woody Harrelson) loses the 1960 Democratic presidential nomination to John F. Kennedy (Jeffrey Donovan), he agrees to be his young rival's running mate. After they win the election, despite his extensive experience and shrewd instincts, Johnson finds himself sidelined in the role of vice president. But that all changes on Nov. 22, 1963 when Kennedy is assassinated and Johnson is suddenly thrust into the presidency. As the nation mourns, Johnson must contend with mentors and adversaries as he seeks to honor JFK's legacy by championing the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964. -- (C) Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, 2016, USA.
