All The King's Men (2007)(2007)
In 1950s Louisiana, humble populist Willie Stark (Penn) is elected governor with the help of working class yobs. He gets together a team of colleagues to face the opposition of the upper class. But when he instructs them to dig up some dirt on the influential Judge (Hopkins), things begin to unravel. The destructive forces of corruption and betrayal bring him to his knees. The film is based on Robert Penn Warren's 1946 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, and boasts an amazing cast.
