    This epic miniseries from HBO takes viewers inside the incredible life of John Adams, the second president of the United States. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by David McCullough, the seven-part series follow Adams (Paul Giamatti, SIDEWAYS) during his leadership of America during some of its most turbulent times. It also captures his profound relationship with his wife Abigail (Laura Linney, YOU CAN COUNT ON ME), one of history's great love stories. From the Boston Massacre--where Adams defended the accused British soldiers--to his role in the Revolution and framing the Constitution, Adams showed himself to be an uncommon man, following his convictions while also facing his own personal demons. It's a story of tragedy, love, war, friendship, freedom, liberty, and a uniquely American life.

  • A must see for any history buff and more

    If you don't have HBO and missed the series this is well worth getting and owning. I have the set AND own the series so I can watch it again. I learned many things about all the leading charaters I did not know, and I believe this would also be a great way for a history student to get a broader view of our country and the people that led the fight for independence. Don't MISS this. Great characters and cinematography come to your home.

  • John Adams

    This is a true to life movie of the life of John Adams, 2nd president of the USA and his struggles with the government, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and especially his family. Mrs. Adams, Abigail, was ahead of her time for a woman of that era, in her thoughts of how the government should run and to what degree John should partake. She was his best friend in all things. The actors that portray our forefathers come across as if they are still with us. Awesome! I would highly recommend this to everyone, especially US history buffs and lovers of biographies.

  • John Adams DVD

    Totally absorbing story of our forefathers. We rarely hear about John Adams and his spontaneous temper, nor his loving relationship with his wife. More stories similar to this would make history a lot more interesting to learn rather than trying to memorize dates and events. Time well spent watching this fabulously portrayed slice of history.

  • Wonderful History Lesson

    This DVD is an excellent example of what entertainment should be like today. I learned so much about our history as a country but enjoyed this movie so very much. The actors and actresses where great, production was wonderful and I could not stop watching until the final credits. I would recommend this to anyone who has any interest in our history or politics of the early years of our country.
