Drama, Period and Historical
The name John Wilkes Booth is synonymous with the dramatic assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, which took place in a crowded theatre in the dying days of America's Civil War. This is no surprise, since it was Booth who pulled the trigger - but this film takes us into the lesser-known story of Mary Surrat, the only woman charged as a co-conspirator in the trial that followed. Brit James McAvoy stars as Surrat's reluctant defence lawyer, and this worthy courtroom drama asks some powerful questions about the meaning of justice - which are no less relevant than they were in 1865.
This film is based on the assassination over 45 years ago of US president John F Kennedy, and the conspiracy theories many are still obsessed with.
