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.

Not worth your time
21 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a huge fan of many things. One is independent films and the second is the numerous conspiracy theories surrounding the Kennedy assassination.

Went to TRFF to see Foxcatcher (which is whole other review - snooze-fest) and this was also one of the features playing.

Shot on a shoestring budget of around (I'm guessing) 500 - 750k. A small budget on a period piece means several things. One is it isn't going to be great costume wise and 2, you'll be paying many of the actors nothing. (a year later i met a guy who was in this ans said they didn't even get fed some days).

At any rate, the plot and story have potential but not in the hands of this director (or AD staff). The acting is what you'd expect from a movie this low budget. No one had a break away performance and some of the extras looked like they just decided to walk aimlessly in the scenes.

Had this been the hands of a capable director, it would be a good low budget indie. But as it stands now, its better off a stage play.
