    A very good movie. Explanation of Booth's life, motivations and actions leading up to President Lincoln's assassination give dimension to Booth other than that he was a southern sympathizer and he killed Lincoln. Tom Hanks does a great job of narrating the events and timelines of the last days of Lincoln and Booth.

    I thought this would be an informative piece played out by the characters from history. However it was more like a documentary and I wish I had just rented it instead of owning it.
