JFK is the story of the investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy led by New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison (Kevin Costner).  When Garrison begins to doubt the conventional thinking on the murder, he faces government resistance and after the killing of suspected assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald (Gary Oldman), he closes the case.  Later, however, Garrison reopens the investigation, finding evidence of an extensive conspiracy behind Kennedy’s murder.
