"The Conspirator" A Movie Review, By Your Houston Real Estate Professional - 04/16/11 09:37 PM
"The Conspirator" A Movie Review, By Your Houston Real Estate Professional. This movie, produced and directed by Robert Redford, was an unexpected look at the events surrounding the Lincoln assassination. The first 15 minutes was a recreation of the events and the balance of the movie was about the court trial of Mary Surratt, played by Robin Wright. The at first unwilling defense attorney was played by James McAvoy. James had the most outstanding role in this movie, in my opinion.
