I should add, in addition to Gimatti and Linney giving stellar performances, David Morse as George Washington was equally as admirable. The man's been acting for 30+ years, and he deserves to get that emmy he's nominated for.Just my 2c. Love this miniseries!
I was awed by Paul Giamatti's portrayal of John Adams, as well as Laura Linney's portrayal of Abigail Adams. Their performances sometimes brought me to tears, it was that believable. They both showed the "human" side of them and their true love, respect, and admiration they had for each other throughout their lives. I am so happy to see that they both were nominated for an Emmy award, they truly
The life and times of John Adams, a leap of faith by imperfect men into the unknown and just as sure a leap of faith by the actors to take on such a challenging role. Mr. Adams, as I can hear Abigail call him, I first read of him years ago but none so telling as the Letters of Abigail Adams and John Adams. How intimate a look of a man whose very words still stirs me and moves me to tears.
