This is a portrayal via Woody Harrelson into the life of President Lyndon Banes Johnson and it is quite good. The way Harrelson plays Johnson is not from extreme likeness but more mannerisms. He captured something of the actual man in his swearing, his harsh, mannerisms, his dagger eyed stared and his folksy story telling. The production value is high and with Rob Reiner as director, the performances by all actors was top notch. Jeffrey Donovan form Burn Notice plays Jack Kennedy and nails the Kennedy demeanor and speaking style. He deserves a best supporting actor nomination for his work.
