Picture from 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.
