Parkland (2013)

I’m always wary of a movie with a plethora of seasoned actors; it has the potential to feel like a required class, in which Hollywood’s upperclassmen sit around chewing scenery. In this instance, I was pleasantly surprised. The true unsung hero, however, is the screenwriter, who not only chose to focus on overlooked perspectives of JFK’s assassination (a story that’s threadbare from handling) but who also prepared a medium through which the stars could best showcase their craft. Texas’ historically underappreciated hospital finally gets its moment in the sun.
