LBJ (Netflix disc):

Lyndon B. Johnson aligns himself with John F. Kennedy, rises to the Presidency, and deals with the civil rights struggles of the 1960s.

Woody Harrelson was great in this. Underrated actor (if one really looks at that statement) IMO. It doesn’t glorify LBJ, he was kind of an a-hole, but doesn’t necessarily vilify him, either. He was forced into a very volatile and fluid situation, and had to deal with it. This is not overly dramatic, doesn’t draw things out (100 minute movie). Would definitely give it a watch.
