Director of 'Parkland' tries to re-create history's human drama
Small gestures rather than grand conspiracies are what Peter Landesman went looking for when he decided to write and direct the film "Parkland," about the immediate aftermath of John F. Kennedy's Nov. 22, 1963, assassination. Starting with Vincent Bugliosi's nonfiction book "Four Days in November," he turned his journalist's eye to the seldom-examined trove of banal facts surrounding the days in Dallas experienced by players on the periphery of history.
