Storyline Heading
LBJ centers on the political upheaval that Vice President Johnson faced when he was thrust into the presidency at the hands of an assassin's bullet in November 1963. With political battles on both sides of the aisle, Johnson struggles to heal a nation and secure his presidency by passing Kennedy's historic Civil Rights Act.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is not a standard birth-to-death biopic of former President Lyndon Johnson, but one that covers the period from before he won the Vice Presidency through to when he took over the Presidency after John F. Kennedy's assassination. This is a big showcase for star Woody Harrelson as the title character, with other familiar actors such as Jennifer Jason Leigh and Bill Pullman having very small roles. Fairly frequent language, adult subject matter, and a scene of disturbing violence make the the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good Fortified by vivid, compelling performances from Woody Harrelson and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Lyndon and Lady Bird Johnson, Rob Reiner's "LBJ” captures a tumultuous political era and one of its most profanely colorful leaders with a good deal of insight and emotional torque.

NY Post Full Review
Good ...as a primer on one of history's less flashy leaders, it's a worthwhile watch — mostly for fellow Texan Woody Harrelson's committed performance behind those prosthetic ears. Jennifer Jason Leigh brings a quiet dignity as Johnson's wife, Lady Bird...

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average The topical and transitory nature of the film means that viewers will have to look elsewhere to understand the full scope of L.B.J.'s life and legacy. Rob Reiner's film fails to do justice to both the man and the fraught times he so fundamentally influenced.
