Release Date: February 14, 2017.
"Utterly compelling, with some terrific performances."
The Boston Herald.
Just two months into his presidency, Ronald Reagan lay near death after a gunman's bullet came within an inch of heart. His recovery was nothing short of remarkable, but Reagan had been grievously injured, forcing him to encounter a challenge that few men ever face. Could he overcome his traumatic experience while carrying out the duties of the most powerful man in the world? Based on the best-selling book, Killing Reagan begins in the final months leading up to the 1980s presidential election. It explores the challenges Reagan faced to define himself as a leader, and delves into the downward spiral of an aimless and deranged John Hinckley Jr. as he unravels - leading to the fateful day when these disparate figures collide. -- (C) 20th Century Fox, 2016, USA.
