All the King's Men

All the King's Men

Loosely inspired by the life of former Louisiana governor Huey Long, All the King’s Men presents the fictional story of Willie Stark, a lawyer from small-town Louisiana; portrayed by Sean Penn. The film follows Stark’s ascent to power and, subsequently, his fall from grace. Fans of the movie can visit the State Capitol in downtown Baton Rouge to see where the movie scenes were shot. Visitors can take the elevator to the top of the building for the most amazing views of downtown Baton Rouge and the Mississippi River.
