John Adams

'John Adams' chronicles the life of this remarkable historical figure, a man whose fiercely independent spirit, reverence for the rule of law and commitment to personal liberty profoundly influenced his peers - General George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson - in setting the values and agenda on which the United States of America was founded. Adams (Paul Giamatti) and Abigail (Laura Linney), his wife of 54 years, refined these ambitious democratic ideals, and their partnership became one of the most moving love stories in American history. Based on David McCullough's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, one of the best-selling American historical biographies of all time.
