Description

He is one of America’s least understood and most underestimated Founding Fathers, the second President of the United States, John Adams. From HBO Films comes this sprawling seven-part miniseries event that depicts the extraordinary life of one of the primary shapers of our independence and government. Starring Paul Giamatti as Adams and Laura Linney as his wife Abigail, the miniseries chronicles the man who played a pivotal role in fostering the American Revolution and laying the building blocks of a republic—but whose legacy has often been eclipsed by more flamboyant contemporaries like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton and Benjamin Franklin. Also with Tom Wilkinson, Stephen Dillane, David Morse, Danny Huston, Rufus Sewell, Sarah Polley, Justin Theroux and Guy Henry.

    This was one of the most significant limited series I’ve ever seen when it came out. Tom Hooper and the cast produced an incredible experience based on the written masterpiece by David McCullough. I just watched it for the third time and given the political turmoil of late, it seems even more relevant. What our founding fathers went through to create this fragile nation can’t be forgotten and this series reminds us what a precious thing America is. John Adams was a flawed man, but his determination to the cause of liberty, brilliantly portrayed by Paul Giamatti, remains an example for us today. Watch the making of this program after the series and you’ll see a dedicated team of professional filmmakers at the top of their game. What a wonderful, heartbreaking and inspirational program. Thank you HBO.

    A well-done series, however, the director has taken liberites with Abigail and Jefferrson's views on slavery by interjecting 21 Century views on 18 Century beliefs as well as practices. That is my only complaint.
  • Subtitles?

    Where are the subtitles? When french is spoke, or Dutch....no subtitles. The DVD version has subtitles. This is clearly a serious oversight. Fix it!
