Robert Redford tells the story of Mary Surratt (Robin Wright), the only female co-conspirator charged with the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, in this superior historical drama.
Slow pacing may put many off, but great performances – including James McAvoy as the man defending Surratt – make it all worthwhile.
Good for: An American history lesson.
