Who were the bystanders who witnessed those terrible events by the grassy knoll on November 22, 1963? And who were the doctors on duty at Parkland hospital? And what did Lee Harvey Oswald’s family make of his sudden arrest?

These are the questions imaginatively answered in Peter Landesman’s faithful ensemble drama about that fateful day. Paul Giamatti plays Abraham Zapruder, the man famed for carrying the most precious film in US history, Zac Efron the young surgeon who finds himself attempting to resuscitate the flatlining president.
