Editorial Reviews

Boardinghouse owner Mary Surratt was one of four Southern sympathizers who was tried, convicted and executed for conspiring to assassinate President Lincoln. Believed by many to have been innocent, Mrs. Surratt was nevertheless charged with the crime and within two months would swing from the gallows in Washington D.C. Was Mary truly guilty of the crime, or just a busy mother and innkeeper in the wrong place at the wrong time? While the film's aim is to leave it for you to decide, her story will ultimately remind you of the dangers of mass hysteria, criminal profiling, and trigger-happy vengeance following a national tragedy.

Based in part on Mary Surratt's defense attorney's last minute plea to President Andrew Johnson to spare Mrs. Surratt from execution, this critically acclaimed film has been accepted to film festivals across the U.S. It also won BEST SHORT FILM at the Sacramento Film & Music Festival in Sacramento.

1) On Mary Surratt: An Interview with director Chris King
