Don Draper, the protagonist of Mad Men, symbolizes the elusive American ideal that everyone aspires to be, but nobody is. While he may appear to be perfect, he contends with the disparity between his shameful past and disillusioned present.  ScreenPrism takes a closer look into Don Draper’s pain, which he tries so hard to conceal for fear of losing his coveted image.
