If you were alive fifty years ago on November 22, 1963, you know where you were when you heard the news that President John F. Kennedy had been shot, and if you weren’t, check out this amazing film on the “big screen” with our guest, co-screenwriter Zachary Sklar.
Speculation and argument about the assassination continues. Zach Sklar, co-writer of JFK, will be on hand to discuss the controversial three hour Oliver Stone film. As he and the director recently wrote, “Our film does not come to a firm conclusion about who was responsible for the Kennedy assassination, but it does reject the Warren Commission’s lone-gunman theory as implausible at best — a conclusion that 90 percent of the American people share…”  The cast includes Kevin Costner as New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, Sissy Spacek as his wife, who fears for her family and marriage, Joe Pesci as David Ferrie, the alleged getaway pilot, Tommy Lee Jones as Clay Shaw, Gary Oldman as Lee Harvey Oswald, Donald Sutherland as a Pentagon official, and a host of others including Jack Lemmon, Ed Asner, Walter Matthau, and Kevin Bacon in key small roles.
