For a bit of American history watch Parkland online. It is a film that captures the events before and after JFKâ€™s assassination in Dallas. The film borrows the title from the medical institution where President John Kennedy was rushed to after the shooting and where he was pronounced dead. It is also the same facility where Lee Harvey Oswald the assassin was confirmed dead.
The film begins on the 22nd of November 1963 early morning when JFK and his wife Jackie Kennedy land in Dallas and start making their way to Dealey Plaza. At around that time Abraham, a businessman, is unwittingly recording the events on his camera and he manages to capture Kennedyâ€™s shooting.
Parkland then moves to the emergency room of the hospital by the same name. The ER team is plunged into a crisis mode as they were completely unprepared for this as they try to resuscitate JFKâ€™s almost lifeless body. Jackie Kennedy with blood all over her is meanwhile sobbing nearby. It does not take long before President Kennedy is pronounced dead. A priest from the Catholic Church is then summoned for the administration of the final rites.
As the news travel across the nation, there are also other interesting goings on. An FBI agent, Forrest Sorrels, is for instance trying to get hold of Abrahamâ€™s recording so that it can get developed. Meanwhile media outlets are trying to get their hands on the film too. Alongside this the assassin has been arrested and is in a Dallas jail where confusion is reigning. And even after the assassin is killed, his family is left to deal with the aftermath of their sonâ€™s horrible deed.
