Parkland


By now we're all quite familiar with the events on 11/22/63 when JFK was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.  We know the story.  We've heard the conspiracy theories.  We've seen Oliver Stone's film.  So what more is there to see?  Well, if you're interested, there's always the personal experiences of those on the periphery, like the observers, the doctors, the secret service, etc...  It's not a must see, but with a good cast including Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thornton, Marcia Gay Harden, Zac Efron, Jackie Earle Haley, Ron Livingston, Colin Hanks, and Mark Duplass you could do worse.  If you liked 'Bobby' then this one's for you.  If you're JFK'd out then you can pass.

Grade: B

  1. I enjoyed seeing the different views of the real life witnesses to this tragic event. I especially enjoyed the role of James Badge Dale as Oswald's brother, he was pretty level headed throughout and I felt sympathy towards him. Jackie Weaver as Oswald's mother was good as well. B+ for me
