Movie Info

Set in 1983 Pittsburgh, PA, Peter and Annie Brennan face the tragic death of their young son. The boy's death and the subsequent acquittal of his killer, kindles a conspiratorial paranoia in Peter that threatens his sanity, and marriage. While trying to discover more about the killer of his son, Brennan becomes fixated on the story of The Umbrella Man, a suspected shooter in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. His decent into the underworld of conspiracy theorist sub-culture provides a place of emotional refuge for Peter, yet also contributes to his psychological undoing. From a Moose Lodge in Swissvale PA, to Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, The Umbrella Man is one couples story of love, loss, and the 'against all odds' survival of their relationship.

Audience Reviews for The Umbrella Man

  • Mar 18, 2015
    Screened at the Ohio Independent Film Festival 2014. The Grasso brothers, Michael and Joe, deliver a thrilling, funny conspiracy tale. Made and set around Pennsylvania, this film brings unique characters to the screen with high-end production values. Carter Roy is excellent as a father who becomes obsessed with death while grieving his young son. He channels this obsession into studying the Zapruder film and trying to solve the mystery of President Kennedy's death. It is the 1980s and he joins a club with other conspiracy theorists. Abbi Cobb also stands out as a Jackie Kennedy impersonator, and suddenly the movie turns into a sort of buddy picture. Solving one mystery helps the father find resolution to his son's death, but is it too late to patch things up with his wife. A top-notch story!
