Parkland

Anatomy of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy following - in real time - the immediate fallout as experienced by the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital who treated him; the Secret Service and FBI; the unwitting cameraman who captured it on film; and Vice President Lyndon Johnson, who had to take control of the country at a moment's notice. Stars Zac Efron, Marcia Gay Harden, Billy Bob Thornton and Paul Giamatti. Co-produced by Tom Hanks, this is the feature debut from writer/director Peter Landesman.

The film is otherwise engrossing, quietly revelatory, and often profoundly moving as it retells a story we only thought we knew.
