About Trudeau II: Maverick in the Making

This three-hour prequel to the 2002 miniseries, “Trudeau”, chronicles the coming of age of Canada’s 15th Prime Minister and the forces that shaped his brilliant mind and fierce political will. Fatherless at 14, a thorn in the side of his Jesuit professors, the young Pierre Elliott Trudeau chafed under the suffocating pressures of the very conservative Quebec of the ’30s and ’40s. Iconoclast, gadfly, a restless traveler and ladies’ man, he helped plant the seeds for Quebec’s Quiet Revolution by challenging all of its sacred cowsโ€”including the Catholic Church and the autocratic premier of Quebec, Maurice Duplessis.
