On November 22nd, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. This is the story of what happened next. From producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman.


Parkland recounts the chaotic events that occurred in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Written and directed by Peter Landesman and produced by Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, Bill Paxton and Exclusive Media's Nigel Sinclair and Matt Jackson, Parkland is the ferocious, heart-stopping and powerful untold true story of the people behind the scenes of one of the most scrutinized events in history.

Parkland weaves together the perspectives of a handful of ordinary individuals suddenly thrust into extraordinary circumstances: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital; Dallas' chief of the Secret Service; an unwitting cameraman who captured what became the most watched and examined film in history; the FBI agents who nearly had the gunman within their grasp; the brother of Lee Harvey Oswald, left to deal with his shattered family; and JFK's security team, witnesses to both the president's death and Vice President Lyndon Johnson's rise to power over a nation whose innocence was forever altered.

The ensemble cast includes James Badge Dale ("The Pacific," "Rubicon," Shame), Zac Efron (The Paperboy, At Any Price, The Lucky One), Oscar®-nominee Jackie Earle Haley (Lincoln, Watchmen, Shutter Island), Colin Hanks (The Guilt Trip, W., The Good Guys), David Harbour (End Of Watch, "The Newsroom," The Green Hornet), Oscar-winner Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River, Pollock), Golden Globe®-nominee Ron Livingston (Office Space, "Band Of Brothers," "Sex And The City"), Jeremy Strong (Zero Dark Thirty, Lincoln), Oscar-winner Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade, Eagle Eye), Oscar-nominee Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook, Animal Kingdom), Mark Duplass ("The League," Zero Dark Thirty), Gil Bellow (House at the End of the Street, The Shawshank Redemption) and Oscar-nominee Paul Giamatti (The Ides Of March, Cinderella Man).
