Synopsis


Parkland
The events surrounding President John F. Kennedy's assassination are explored from multiple perspectives in this historical drama based on Vincent Bugliosi's book Four Days in November. The moment those shots echoed through the streets of Dallas on November 22, 1963, the entire city erupted into chaos. The leader of the free world was dead, and his security team was scrambling for clues. Film from an amateur had captured the tragedy in vivid detail, but the gunman had slipped through the FBI's grasp. Meanwhile, the doctors and nurses at Dallas' Parkland Hospital found themselves in the eye of the storm, and Vice President Lyndon Johnson was thrust into the role of Commander in Chief. In this film, we follow the events of that fateful day from the perspectives of the people who were there to witness one of the most disputed events in history firsthand. Zac Efron, Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thornton, Jacki Weaver, and Jeremy Strong star in a film featuring James Badge Dale, Jackie Earle Haley, Tom Hanks, and Ron Livingston. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Not Just Another JFK Conspiracy Movie

    This film gives a lot of insight into what was happening in Dallas that day and events leading up to the assassination. There is a lot of information presented that helps fill in the gaps from the news reports and everything else that has been produced about that day in Dallas. There is something here for everyone. For the conspiracy buff there is much to question, how could one person acting alone pull this off? If you are a sole assassin believer the film makes it seem very plausible that Oswald acted alone. No matter what your view is, this is a great movie.

    A behind the scenes look at what went on at Parkland hospital the day that President Kennedy was shot and everything that happened afterward. You almost feel like you were there that fatal day in Dallas. You also learn about the Zapruder film and how it came to be. Also the killing of Oswald is detailed. I learned a lot of facts that I didn't know and enjoyed the film very much.

    Acting was great, but the story could have flowed a little better. I liked the movie, but character development was lacking. If this JFK stuff interests you, then its worth a chance. Bt if you are not, then i wouldn't recommend this movie to you..

    I liked learning about all the little details of the day of and after the assassination. For example: What Jackie did after he was shot and things that you don't think about like where to put JFK's caskin.
