The Assassination of Richard Nixon
Based on the 1974 true story, this drama revolves around a paranoid and alienated businessman named Samuel Byck (identified in the film as 'Bicke' and played by Sean Penn) decides to take extreme measures to achieve his version of the American Dream being tired of preying on customers. Rejected for a government loan and spurned by his family, he focuses his resentment on the figurehead of the US capitalist system and obsessively plots his downfall. Just when the nation was feeling safe about boarding airplanes again, a frustrated salesman decided that it was incumbent upon him to rid society of the cancer that infected the seat of power in the United States. That would be Nixon.
