Based on the book by Marshall Frady, this epic bio directed by the legendary John Frankenheimer, stars Academyr 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 Emmyr 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).
