Patrick Dempsey is superb as young JFK.
14 October 2002 | by (Meriden,Ct,Usa) – See all my reviews

Patrick Dempsey is superb as young JFK.This movie traces the first 30 years of the life of the man who would become our 35th President.There are illuminating depictions of many little known events in his life,particularly his near expulsion from Choate and his romance with Dutch journalist Inga Arvad,well played by Yoland Thol.The movie boasts a strong supportkng cast,especially Robin Tunney as "Kick" Kennedy,Terry Kinney as Joseph P.Kennedy Sr and Diana Scarwid as Rose Kennedy. 10 out of 10.
