Synopsis

November, 1963. An assassin's bullet catapults Lyndon Baines Johnson into the presidency.

A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, this charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into the passage of the Civil Rights Act—a tinderbox issue emblematic of a divided America—even as he campaigns for re-election in his own right, and the recognition he so desperately wants.

In Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award–winning Robert Schenkkan's vivid dramatization of LBJ's first year in office, means versus ends plays out on the precipice of modern America.

ALL THE WAY is a searing, enthralling exploration of the morality of power.

It's not personal, it's just politics.
