Description

Dramatic retelling of former US President John F. Kennedy's assassination directed by Peter Landesman. Captured on camera by amateur film-maker and photographer Abraham Zapruder (Paul Giamatti), Kennedy (Brett Stimely)'s assassination was an event which shocked the whole world. A firm believer in the need for a transparent government, Kennedy had made as many friends as he had enemies which led to speculation on the identity of his killer, widely thought to have been a lone gunman. Following the events of his shooting and showing the people who had come into contact with him afterwards, including the doctors and staff of Parkland Hospital in Dallas, the film also recounts the manhunt by Agent Forrest Sorrels (Billy Bob Thornton) of the Secret Service for the president's apparent killer, former US Marine and Soviet defector Lee Harvey Oswald (Jeremy Strong).

Synopsis
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.
