Is there a greater crime of the 1800's than the assassination of Abraham Lincoln?
All history class ever taught me about the assassination was John Wilkes Booth shot and killed the president during a performance at Ford's Theater in Washington DC. He fired a bullet into Abe's head, shouted "Sic semper tyrannis" and took off. Even when I got a tour of Ford's theater, all that was mentioned was Lincoln and Booth. But there had to be more, right? Someone else had to be involved, and as long as Oliver Stone isn't the one telling the tale, I'm interested.
Keep in mind I have yet to read James L. Swanson's numerous books on the subject, something I should certainly rectify, but this movie certainly piques my interest until then.
Directed by Robert Redford, written by James D Soloman, and starring James McAvoy, Alexis Bledel, Kevin Kline, Tom Wilkinson, Danny Huston, Colm Meaney, and Robin Wright. This film has Oscar bait written all over it.
I'm only adding this because I've been asked a few times, but yeah, I always accept review/preview copies. Who turns down free stuff? Email me at email@example.com for my mailing address. And thanks.
