Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

"John Adams" is a sprawling HBO miniseries event that depicts the extraordinary life and times of one of Americas least understood, and most underestimated, founding fathers: the second President of the United States, John Adams. Starring Paul Giamatti ("Sideways", "Cinderella Man", HBOs "American Spendor") in the title role and Laura Linney ("You Can Count On Me", "Kinsey") as Adams devoted wife Abigail, "John Adams" chronicles the extraordinary life journey of one of the primary shapers of our independence and government, whose legacy has often been eclipsed by more flamboyant contemporaries like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton and Benjamin Franklin. Set against the backdrop of a nations stormy birth, this sweeping miniseries is a moving love story, a gripping narrative, and a fascinating study of human nature. Above all, at a time when the nation is increasingly polarized politically, this story celebrates the shared values of liberty and freedom upon which this country was built.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5★by 61reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★by Enjoyable history My order was received much quicker than expected and the product was exactly as I believed it would be. Usually when I find such a deal ($20 online instead of the $35+ in stores) the product is a cheaper case or quality or something but this is exactly the product you find in the store. Good job on Wal-Mart's part.As for the movie itself, the main menu of each disk is a bit confusing at first (unlike a simple "play" option on most DVDs, you are sent to a sub-play menu and then a brief summary of what the episode is about. At first I thought I had done something wrong by getting to a summary instead of the movie starting but then I simply hit play again and the movie started. The History of John Adams (and many others for that matter) moves along at a pretty good clip. You won't get a full history lesson on John Adams or his family or those around him, but you get a better sense of life in the early part of colonial America (i.e., beliefs, environments, situations, causes and effects, and relationships). I enjoyed feeling like I was walking through history and learning how our Founding Fathers came to believe in freedom and liberty and create a nation like non other. Also, I feel I could sit down and watch these movies again which adds great value for me if a movie has "replay potential". 12/14/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★by john adams Kudos to HBO! This makes history come alive. I so enjoyed watching this and would again. I almost felt as if I were there. Beautiful imagery and interesting story, I hope HBO does more of the same. 03/08/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★by John Adams We are viewing this as a family and using it as a tool in our Homeschool experience to assist in teaching American History. Thanks for the savings. 09/24/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★by Great Movie Loved the in history John Adams. Some may want to note there is some nudity in a surgery scene and a few graphic battle scenes. 11/14/2009
Rated 3 out of 5★by John Adams The mini-series entitled ‘John Adams’ goes to great length to show that the American Revolutionary era was not romantic.This mini-series clearly depicts just how difficult times were during this era. The accounts of John Adams' life are clearly detailed throughout this series including his emotional relationship with his family and colleagues.Caution, there is a bedroom scene where John Adams being separated from his wife for an extended period of time while in Europe are finally reunited. This scene could very well be rated R – not advised for young children. 08/14/2008
