The LBJ (2017) focuses on the political uprisings that S. Lyndon Baines Johnson met when he became president after the assassination of John F. Kennedy in November 1963. After the Senate Majority Leader, Lyndon Johnson lost the race for his candidacy for the Democratic presidency in 1960 in front of Sen. John F. Kennedy, he agrees to support his young rival. But once they won the election, despite its extensive legislative experience and clever political instincts, Johnson is marginalized as Vice-President. All this changes on November 22, 1963, when Kennedy is assassinated, and Johnson, along with his devoted wife, Lady Bird, is suddenly pushed to the presidency. While the nation shows regrets for the loss suffered, Johnson has to fight with his opponents as he seeks to honor JFK’s legacy by promoting the historic 1964 Civil Rights Act. With political battles on both sides of the corridor, Johnson struggles to cure a nation and secure its presidency by adopting the Kennedy Civil Rights Act.
