by Rob Reiner Gala Premieres

Born into a poor farming family in Texas, it seemed more than unlikely that Lyndon Baines Johnson would one day become the most powerful man in the USA. With extraordinary commitment, the passionate politician climbed to the very top of the Democratic Party, until he was declared Vice President in 1961. After the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, the whole country went into a state of shock – including Johnson, who was sworn in as his successor the very same day. As an advocate of the civil rights movement and avidly fighting nationwide poverty, Johnson had high aims onto which a dark shadow was cast once the Vietnam War escalated under his leadership. LBJ is a moving biopic of the legendary and equally controversial 36th President, embodied by versatile actor Woody Harrelson.
