All The Way is described as a riveting behind-the-scenes look at President Lyndon B. Johnson’s tumultuous first year in office in the wake of President Kennedy’s assassination. The movie tells the story of Johnson during his early administration, as he sacrifices his past, his ties with the South and all that brought him to power in order to pass the landmark Civil Rights Act, and focuses on his efforts to secure his legacy, control his demons of insecurity and win the presidency on his own terms.
The movie, which was ordered by HBO in 2015 following All The Way’s successful run as a play on Broadway, stars Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston as President Johnson. Other cast members include Anthony Mackie, Melissa Leo, Bradley Whitford, Frank Langella, Joe Morton, Stephen Root, Marque Richardson, Aisha Hinds, Todd Weeks, Mo McRae and Spencer Garrett.
