A Confederate sympathizer Mary Surratt is accused of conspiracy in the Abraham Lincoln assassination and has to rely on her reluctant lawyer.

Academy Award-winning director Robert Redford has "The Conspirator" lined up for spring release and has given a trailer for sneak peek. Debuted by Yahoo! Movies, the video is full of tense scenes which start with a shot at Abraham Lincoln.

Several men are arrested and Mary Surratt, a Confederate sympathizer, is the lone female charged as a co-conspirator in the assassination trial of Abraham Lincoln. As the whole nation turns against her, she is forced to rely on her reluctant lawyer to uncover the truth and save her life.

The film has an impressive cast ensemble with Robin Wright Penn playing Mary Surratt and James McAvoy portraying her lawyer, Col. Frederick Aiken. Evan Rachel Wood, Tom Wilkinson, Kevin Kline, Stephen Root, Justin Long, Danny Huston and Jonathan Groff also join the cast line up.

Directed by Robert Redford with a script written by James D. Solomon, "The Conspirator" was premiered at 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. The drama is planned to open in U.S. theaters this April.
