The Review

The highest office in America has faced unimaginable tragedy only a few times in the history. One of those times was the assassination of JFK (John Fitzgerald Kennedy). His successor, Lyndon Baines Johnson would step into the role, only it was not because of his win, it was because of a loss. This story outlines his rise to the top, his personal and political difficulties, and the motivation that guided him. Simply, his life went from opposition to opportunity. An interesting introspective that goes deeper into the man whose life would face praise and persecution up to, through, and even beyond the presidency. This is presented in such a way that it is aimed more at the newer generations than to the generations that lived through the history. Quotes that became his legacy are edited to be politically correct instead of factual, take away from what the story is portraying. It wasn’t just about him, even with everything else, it also shows what was happening to those around him. Is it for everyone? No, but for the ones wanting to know more about who he really was, this is an eye-opener (if you don’t get too caught up in the details).
