Following in excitement the narration for the history of America on the eyes of a Jewish family live in New Jersey, where they witness the political raising of Charles Lindbergh, till he becomes the president, as he hates foreigns and take the nation on the path of fascism and corruption.
Simon and his writing partner... Ed Burns, are to be commended for not only fashioning such an engrossing and provocative drama, but also for assembling a top-to-bottom standout cast that makes the mesmerizing most of this potent material.
The ensemble cast is flawless too, totally convincing as real people of the period, with perfect pitch at the crucial turning points in the plot, and carrying that beguiling authenticity that characterises anything David Simon does.
That was my feeling going in, a hesitance to spend even more time contemplating the clenching grip of fascism. But Simon and Burns, as they have done in the past, find a graceful path through the grimness.
