It was Jesse's acting as Booth that really caught and roused me to watch Killing Lincoln.

Jesse was brilliant in this role. We know, of course, Booth commited one of the most horrible crimes in our country's history. But, as the story wound down and he was caught, I realized I didn't hate Booth. His performance made him human. 
The entire presentation was first rate.

Jesse gave an absolutely riveting performance. Once of the best I have seen this year. As a history major, I thank all of you.
