Still shot from the movie: All the King’s Men.

All the King’s Men

A remake of a 1949 movie, All the King's Men stars Sean Penn as Willie Stark, a depression era politician whose campaign ambitions turn into a personal quest for power. A violent shooting makes it an unlikely pick for kids. It's also too long and too confusing -- likely because we can't understand half of what Sean Penn is saying in his Louisiana accent.

How We Determine Our Grades

Patricia Clarkson stars in another political film that focuses on the uneasy relationship between government officials and the media during the McCarthy Era in Good Night and Good Luck. Charles Foster Kane is a media mogul who marries well and runs for governor only to discover the dichotomy between pride and ethics in the classic film Citizen Kane. The manipulation of state politics shakes a young man’s belief in democracy when he comes face to face with corruption in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.
