Truman is an intimate look into the life and political career of US President Harry S. Truman. This made for TV movie is a rare film that really showcases the personal struggles and sacrifices someone makes to move up the political ladder. Truman grew into a leader during one of the worse times in global history, which is what made him such an important person for us to know about. Gary Sinise really draws you into the character and his story, one about turning certain defeat into certain victory.
