Writer/director David Mamet offers his own unique take on the JFK assassination in this thriller starring Cate Blanchett as a woman who begins to unravel a frightening conspiracy in the aftermath of the national tragedy. Upon learning that her grandfather, a notable Hollywood visual effects artist, has passed away, grieving Janet (Blanchett) heads to Los Angeles for his funeral. When Janet discovers that her late grandfather had been doing some clandestine work for U.S. special ops agencies on the side, her tireless quest for the truth puts her on the radar of some powerful figures who would sooner kill than see their secrets made public.
