Product Overview

Based on the book by Marshall Frady, this epic bio directed by the legendary John Frankenheimer, stars Academy Award nominated actor Gary Sinise as the infamous politician and segregationist George Wallace. Many have portrayed Wallace as a racist, but Frankenheimer's film suggests that it was his lust for power and status that made him bedfellows with racists, and one of the most destructive and most hated American politicians of his time. Sinise -- who won an Emmy Award for this performance -- brilliantly captures both the corruption and the belated search for redemption. Mare Winningham plays his first wife and Angelina Jolie -- in her first major role -- his adoring second. Winningham also won an Emmy for her work and the film won the Golden Globe for Best Mini-Series (1997).

Review Directed by John Frankenheimer and starring Gary Sinise as the title character, the film goes beyond mere historical regurgitation to create a fully rounded and ethically frank portrait of Wallace. Despite the many contemptible actions he took during his career in politics, only the most hardened viewer will not feel tears welling up by the end...Wallace, on the national scene, was little more than a one-note politician, but the film reveals a more elaborate complexity in his actions and, more importantly, focuses on his maturation as a human. If the movie were longer it might have delved more deeply into the political process, which it skirts in favor of emotional experiences, but it remains very informative and reliable in its recreation of real events, both behind-the-scenes and what is part of the public record, and it manages to tie almost everything to Wallace's own thoughts and feelings. The study of history cannot penetrate any deeper than that. Sinise's performance is outstanding, holding onto a viewer's attention, even as his character's morals degenerate, and spanning three decades of aging and physical decline...One of the most impressive aspects about George Wallace is the balance of attitudes every scene achieves...Frankenheimer does a three hour balancing act, and he never so much as jiggles the wire.
