Wright stuff for killer film

ROBIN Wright is the star of the latest film by Robert Redford, 'The Conspirator', which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival at the weekend.
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.
