Point is a 2008 thriller film. It is directed by Pete Travis and stars
Dennis Quaid, Forest Whitaker, Matthew Fox, William Hurt and Sigourney

Pictures' Vantage Point, Thomas Barnes (Dennis Quaid) and Kent Taylor
(Matthew Fox) are two Secret Service agents assigned to protect
President Ashton (William Hurt) at a landmark summit on the global war
on terror. When President Ashton is shot moments after his arrival in
Salamanca, Spain, chaos ensues and disparate lives collide. In the
crowd is Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker), an American tourist
videotaping the historic event to show his kids when he returns home.
Also there is Rex (Sigourney Weaver), an American TV news producer who
is reporting on the conference. It's only as we follow each person's
perspective of the same 15 minutes prior to and immediately after the
shooting that the terrifying truth behind the assassination attempt is
revealed. ...This description...
