Page Parkes Alum, Alexis Bledel, filming new movie!

Robert Redford's new film, The Conspirator, starring Page Parkes alum, Alexis Bledel, started filming in Savannah, GA in October!
Alexis plays Sarah Weston, see her below with James McAvoy!!

Check out the juicy historical plot: In the wake of Abraham Lincoln's assassination, seven men and one woman are arrested and charged with conspiring to kill the President, Vice-President, and Secretary of State. The lone woman charged, Mary Surratt, 42, owns a boarding house where John Wilkes Booth and others met and planned the simultaneous attacks. Against the ominous back-drop of post-Civil War Washington, newly-minted lawyer, Frederick Aiken, a 28-year-old Union war-hero, reluctantly agrees to defend Surratt before a military tribunal. Aiken realizes his client may be innocent and that she is being used as bait and hostage in order to capture the only conspirator to have escaped a massive manhunt: her own son.
