All the King's Men
And after we invade Poland, the whole world will fear us!
A remake of an Oscar-winning movie from 1949, re-interpreted for a new generation. A lower-class firebrand wins a landslide victory to become governor of Louisiana. He sets about changing things to please his voters, which does not sit well with the wealthy upper classes. A retired judge institutes legal action against him, which puts a key member of the governor's staff in a difficult position. As the governor becomes used to his power, he starts the inevitable slide towards the dark side, resorting to underhanded tactics to crush his enemies.
