The movie looks into a little-known angle of one of the best-known moments in American history: the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.

Instead of dealing with the shooting in Ford's Theatre in Washington, Redford takes aim at a back story to the 1865 assassination of the US president -- a complex plot that resulted in seven men and one woman being arrested and charged with conspiring to kill the president.

"It is a story that very few, if any, know," Redford said, ahead of the eagerly-awaited gala screening.
