Storyline

Set in 1983 Pittsburgh, PA, Peter and Annie Brennan face the tragic death of their young son. The boy's death and the subsequent acquittal of his killer, kindles a conspiratorial paranoia in Peter that threatens his sanity, and marriage. While trying to discover more about the killer of his son, Brennan becomes fixated on the story of The Umbrella Man, a suspected shooter in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. His decent into the underworld of conspiracy theorist sub-culture provides a place of emotional refuge for Peter, yet also contributes to his psychological undoing. From a Moose Lodge in Swissvale PA, to Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, The Umbrella Man is one couples story of love, loss, and the 'against all odds' survival of their relationship.

A surprise hit at the Three Rivers Film Festival
12 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Locally produced films can be hit or miss at Pittsburgh's Three Rivers Film Festival. While everyone expected Foxcatcher to be this year's great local hit, there wasn't a lot of advanced buzz for The Umbrella Man. But this much lower budget film delivered and the audience loved it. Umbrella Man is wonderfully acted, especially Carter Roy's performance. Much like the much loved time travel movie "Primer," Umbrella Man deftly weaves a fairly simple concept into a complex story as obsession and grief battle within Roy's character. This film has great heart and is wonderfully entertaining. Certainly those interested in the Kennedy assassination will want to see it, but there's far more to enjoy.
