The conclusion to Robert Schenkkan’s epic story of LBJ’s tumultuous presidency, The Great Society, directed by Marilyn Langbehn, with John Hale returning in the role of the 36th president. While LBJ fights a “war on poverty” at home, his war in Vietnam begins to spiral out of control. Besieged by political enemies, Johnson desperately fights to pass civil rights legislation and some of the most important social programs in American history, even as the country turns against him and descends into chaos. Filled with a cast of legendary characters—from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Bobby Kennedy and Richard Nixon—The Great Society is an exhilarating examination of power, morality, and change.
