Great Short Film with no budget
2 April 2011 | by davidgokingsSee all my reviews

This film about the boardinghouse innkeeper Mary Surratt's unjust hanging less than 2 months after her arrest in Lincoln's Assassination is a good one. Considering the film had next to no budget, the writer/director, cast and crew do a remarkable job in telling the story in such a short period of time. The settings in Old Sacramento along with the costumes were superb. I'm sure if King had the same Hollywood budget that the new Redford film(with a similar storyline) had, he would give him a run for his money. An entertaining and educational short film taking a true story and adding the writer's perspective on how it MAY have happened.
