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.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Series I watched John Adams on HBO and bought the series a Christmas gift.John Adams was a well written well acted and directed HBO series. We need more quiality programming like this.I would highly recommend this series for anyone who has an interest in the subject it portrays. 10/14/2008
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Wonderful Series for history lovers I bought this for my father-in-law for Christmas because I knew as an American history buff he'd love this story. I saw it last year and couldn't stop raving about it. Beyond excellent acting - a wonderful insight into America's political beginnings, and the hardships that faced John Adams, his family, and the country. It's obvious the director took great pains in keeping the story as historically authentic as possible; there are scenes where the family suffers from smallpox, and a daughter with breast cancer, that you truly are transported to those times, and the limited means they had to deal with illness, etc. I can't wait to watch it again with him. I always appreciate a well-thought, inspired historical story. - and I really enjoyed the awesome love story between Adams and his wife, who was truly the woman behind the man of power. Without her, he would have been lost many times - she is his strength and he knows it. Even if you know nothing about American history, or don't really care, you'll love this series:) 12/26/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Absolutely Awesome Historical Movie Great historically accurate movie about our forefathers and our country's struggle for independence. Everyone is taught about George Washington and Thomas Jefferson from Kindergarten through High School, but very little is mentioned about John Adams. If you've always wondered who he was and about his role in our country's beginning, this movie is a must see. Very good acting and accurate portrayal of the times. Boy, I'm sure glad I was born in the 20th century! 01/18/2010

Rated 5 out of 5★ by A must have! This is an excellent series and a must have for families with high schoolers or for history buffs. Most amazing was the price from Walmart Online. Short of getting it for a gift, the price (plus site to store free shipping) cannot be beat. 12/11/2009
