Summary

John Logan’s powerful historical drama about the crime of the century–the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby. Did the German-immigrant carpenter Bruno Richard Hauptmann kidnap the only son of America’s hero Charles Augustus Lindbergh? Or did Hauptmann go to the electric chair the victim of prejudice, hysteria, and poor judgment? We can’t know. But at the end of the evening, after studying Hauptmann’s words and manner for some clue to the truth, we come away with a sense of mysteries that, though they’re all around us, we haven’t sensed before.
