Picture from 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.
