Ben Gates (Nicolas Cage) sets out to find the lost 18 pages from the diary of Abraham Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth. One of the 18 missing pages has been discovered by Jeb Wilkinson (Ed Harris). On that page are the names of the Lincoln assassination conspirators. Thomas Gates, Ben Gates' great-great-grandfather, is listed on the page. After discovering this, Ben does not want Thomas Gates to be remembered "as a conspirator in the assassination of the man who brought this nation together." His quest to clear his family's name leads to unexpected twists and turns. Agent Sadusky (Harvey Keitel) tells Ben that a secret book has the information he needs. The president's "book of secrets" holds documents, for presidents' eyes only, of all the nations secrets; from the truth behind the JFK conspiracy, the missing minutes from the Watergate tapes, and Area 51. When Ben's request to see the book is denied, he says he must kidnap the president. Each clue leads him closer "to a discovery that the world isn't ready to believe."

this, and PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED among
them. I find his acting believable, and NOT "over
the top" like a few reviewers said. Perhaps they
confused a plot that IS over the top with reality.
THIS is pure escapism, not unlike, say, the Indiana
Jones franchise flicks.
However, this time I watched it with my 8 year old daughter. She's finally getting to an age when everything doesn't have to be animated for her to watch it movie wise. Finding non animated movies with the over abundance of R rated movies being made isn't easy but this one fits the bill. No sex scenes. No F bombs. No naked people. Just a good plot with good action. It's a little violent but no worse that kids are exposed to on the news and in everyday life.
All in all a good movie even for the younger people. I highly recommend it. Also recommend the original National Treasure which my daughter also loved along with The Italian Job with Mark Whalberg. Another daughter favorite.
