Review from ~The real original Blade trilogy Creator and Producer, Ken Willis
“The greatest dramatic acting at its best! Actor, John Ramaine transformed himself into the real live Legendary Actor, John Wilkes Booth himself. A must-see movie.”
The film begins with John Wilkes Booth as a young man in the prime of his life and progresses into an old broken-down man ready to commit suicide. The other characters are apparitions in Booth’s mind; which include the many loves of his life, family members and political figures.
The Confession of John Wilkes Booth provides a twist that history refuses to acknowledge. It raises importance to particular events that may prove controversial. As in any retelling of history, art leads the way.
” I had the opportunity to watch the new stage to film production, The Confession of John Wilkes Booth. Starring John Ramaine, portraying Booth from a younger man to his death is riveting. The premise of a government conspiracy to cover up the truth around the assassination of Abraham Lincoln leaves the viewers questioning history. The acting is superb and the costumes are on mark to that period in history.”
