Based on the novel by Philip Roth, ‘The Plot Against America’ chronicles an alternative universe where “Charles Lindbergh defeats Franklin D Roosevelt in the 1940 United States presidential election.”
With the rise of fascism, xenophobia and the politics of hate – kind of sounds like our world today – David Simon and Ed Burns have adapted a sharp, compelling and cautionary tale that has been executed by an ensemble cast inWinona Ryder, Anthony Boyle, Zoe Kazan, Morgan Spector, Michael Kostroff, David Krumholtz & John Turturro.
HBO’s limited series have been on a roll and the fact that they’re making an effort to release companion podcasts shows that TV studios are serious about the platform. Looking forward to episode two!
P.S. That speech by Lindbergh did happen. BTW.
