House of Cards, Season 1, episode 1, 9:33
Description: The moment it all begins. Here, Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey) understands that his bid for Secretary of State, a crucial step on his path to an eventual Presidency, has failed. He is trapped in the corner of the room, which you can see behind his back. At the left, two lamps cast a warm light on a portrait of George Washington, whose footsteps he’ll now be unable to follow. It’s a surprisingly delicate portrayal of a violent breaking point.
