Parkland

Paul Giamatti in Parkland

Parkland is a powerful true story, never before told, of the people behind the scenes of one of the most scrutinised moments in history. Written and directed by Peter Landesman, Parkland recounts the chaotic events that occurred in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

 

Parkland weaves together the perspectives of a handful of ordinary individuals suddenly thrust into extraordinary circumstances: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital; Dallas’ chief of the Secret Service; an unwitting cameraman who captured what became the most watched and examined film in history; the FBI agents who nearly had the gunman within their grasp; the brother of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, left to deal with his shattered family; and JFK’s security team, witnesses to both the President’s death and Vice President Lyndon Johnson’s rise to power over a nation whose innocence was forever altered.

Great cast, including: Colin Hanks, Zac Efron, Billy Bob Thornton and Paul Giametti

Based on the book Four Days In November, by Vincent Bugliosi, PARKLAND is produced by Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman

Parkland premieres at The Venice Film Festival on Sept 1st
