Based on author David McCullough's Pulitzer Prize-winning biography, the film tells the tale of a leader whose remarkable vision helped to guide a burgeoning republic through an especially tumultuous period. Thanks to the tireless support of his loving wife Abigail (Laura Linney), and lifelong friendship with political rivalry Thomas Jefferson (Stephen Dillane), John Adams rose to prominence as the spokesman for the American independence movement before moving on to become America's first ambassador to Holland and England, the first American Vice President, the second American President, and the father of the sixth American President. As with McCullough's best-selling biography, the film draws on a comprehensive collection of letters, diaries, and family papers in order to create the most accurate representation of Adams' life and achievements ever captured on film. ~ Jason Buchanan, RoviHide synopsis
This was the best mini series I have watched since North and South. This is a very inspiring movie that feeds your soul, lifts your spirits, yet captures the frailties of the human experience and true to life dynamics of this family. It made me laugh and cry. Showed how determined this founding father was to set this nation off on the right foot.
It made me want to research more of the stories of Adams, Franklin and Jefferson. Great history lesson. Showed how much these men and their families sacrificed for the nation.
What brilliant scholars these men were and wonderful orators. Five thumbs up.
