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.
