"The Conspirator" — 48 weeks ago
The main problem with the film is the dialogue, which is completely wrong for the era. Civil War captains giving lines like “Uh-huh.” Lots of wonderful actors, even in small supporting roles, giving solid performances although no standouts. Great plot, very interesting and probably accessible to most Americans, even those who aren’t crazy about history. Redford draws parallels between the aftermath of Lincoln’s assassination and the aftermath of 9/11 which are interesting to debate, even if you decide you don’t agree with them.
