In the lead-up to the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22, TV programming is going to be flooded with specials, movies and retrospectives on JFK's death. "Killing Kennedy," perhaps the highest-profile of the bunch, came to kick things off on Sunday (Nov. 10).

In the Nat Geo film, based on Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's best-selling book, Rob Lowe stars as Kennedy, alongside Ginnifer Goodwin as Jacqueline Kennedy. Following Kennedy's final three years, things kick off in 1960, tracking the parallel stories of the ill-fated president and Lee Harvey Oswald (Will Rothhaar). While JFK faces the the threat of Communism in Cuba, Oswald's in Russia, renouncing his American citizenship and meeting his wife, Marina (Michelle Trachtenberg). Eventually, their paths cross in a most horrific way, with the movie eschewing the multiple killers conspiracy that's commonly considered, instead presenting the assassination in the most traditional sense. »
