Still shot from the movie: The Conspirator.

The Conspirator

When Abraham Lincoln is assassinated, eight people are arrested for conspiring to kill the President of the United States. The only woman amongst the accused is Mary Surratt (Robin Wright). As her lawyer (James McAvoy) reluctantly defends her case, he begins to suspect it isn't his client, but rather her son (Johnny Simmons) that the military tribunal really wants to catch and hang.

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

The Conspirator is the first film made by The American Film Company, an organization dedicated to creating movies about American history. Their website is located at www.theamericanfilmcompany.com. They also have extensive historical resources that may be accessed by clicking the link near the top of the page labeled "Talk History."
