37th Annual VIRGINIA FILM FESTIVAL October 30-November 3, 2024

All the Way


All the Way offers a riveting look at President Lyndon B. Johnson’s tumultuous first year in office after the tragic assassination of John F. Kennedy. Bryan Cranston reprises his Tony Award-winning role as Johnson in this gripping film based on the play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Robert Schenkkan. Following his struggle to both pass the Civil Rights Act and to secure his reelection, Johnson finds himself caught between the moral imperative of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the expectations of the southern Democratic Party leaders who brought him to power. Discussion with writer Robert Schenkkan, moderated by Guian McKee
