Doing research for an upcoming project. Looking for worthwhile portrayals of U.S. Presidents.
1. They have to be actual U.S. Presidents who actually may have been involved in the events portrayed. In other words, no science fiction. No Air Force One. No X-Men. No Superman II. I would even say no Primary Colors.
2. The film doesn't have to take place during the persons Presidency. So Young Mr. Lincoln is definitely in, as is Lincoln and Abe Lincoln of Illinois.
3. The President doesn't need to be the central character. So John Adams is a great choice for Adams, but also worth considering for George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. However, he should play a part in the drama of the film. So, The Missiles of October or Thirteen Days is great, but JFK is iffy.
4. I'm fine with TV Movies, Mini-series and foreign language films, but I'm trying to stay away from documentaries.
Thank you for your help.
