ClearPlay In Action!The Conspirator is a fairly clean movie, ClearPlay excising a handful of unnecessary swear words that creep in, including an ‘S’ word or two. It also softens a couple of violent spots surrounding the assassination attempt. With ClearPlay, the movie would be appropriate for younger teens and up.
Should I Conspire to See this Movie?…The Consipirator is a historical and courtroom drama with all that implies. It is a bit clunky in spots and won’t knock your socks off, but it will hold your interest as a glimpse into a lesser known event surrounding Lincoln’s assassination. The film acts as a cautionary tale against vengeance and prejudice, and if you are unfamiliar with the story of Mary Surratt (as I was), it’s worth a spin, especially for history aficionados.
