The Killing of Mary Surratt-- a story not told in history books and a must see!
28 September 2011 | by glimmrgirlSee all my reviews

The Killing of Mary Surratt is a powerful story, told in in 23 minutes, of one of the little known events in U.S. history at the time of the Civil War. Mary Surratt's story interpreted by Director Chris King and his superb cast leaves all viewers wondering--did she or didn't she? Every Lincoln and Civil War or Women's History enthusiast must see this film. Shot at popular historic locations in CA, the story is a universal one of the emotional environment and reactionary thinking in the wake of an assassination. Too bad Redford's version (The Conspirator) never quite captures the emotion of the moment in a grieving nation's collective mind, much less in Mary Surratt's.
