Parkland shows how was the life of some people who were involved in the death of President John F. Kennedy. From the chaos, disbelief and horror at Parkland hospital that received President Kennedy (along with the disorder in the sad trip back to Washington with Kennedy's coffin), the suffering of who had the sad 'privilege' of filming great detail the murder, as the family of Lee Harvey Oswald took the stain to be related to the person murderer Kennedy. No shows ridiculous conspiracy theories, and focuses on the great historical or political moments, but shows us how, on any given day, these people took this unexpected horror. Not for nothing the best movie in the world, but it is certainly interesting to see this view of such an important and sad day in history.

Parkland nos muestra como fue la vida de algunas personas que se vieron involucradas en la muerte del Presidente John F. Kennedy. Desde el caos, la incredulidad y el horror en el hospital Parkland que recibió al Presidente Kennedy (junto con el desorden en el triste viaje de regreso a Washington con el ataúd de Kennedy), el sufrimiento de quien tuvo el triste "privilegio" de filmar con lujo de detalle el asesinato, al como la familia de Lee Harvey Oswald asumió la mancha de ser pariente de quien asesino a Kennedy. No nos muestra las ridículas teorías de conspiración, ni se centra en los grandes momentos históricos o políticos, sino que nos muestra como, en un día cualquiera, estas personas asumieron este inesperado horror. No es para nada la mejor película del mundo, pero sin duda es interesante ver este punto de vista de un día tan importante y triste en la historia.

Not too impressed. Nothing I didn't already know and the acting wasn't that great given the caliber of actors involved.

A very brief account of the JFK assassination. I would have liked to see more depth although there were some interesting facts throughout the film.
