Trivia

When Michelle Trachtenberg signed on to play Marina Oswald, her script dialogue was mostly in Russian with some English later added. Her Russian-born mother acted as her translator in helping to break down her entire script both phonetically and vernacularly. See more »

Quotes

John F. Kennedy: There are men dying on those beaches, right now. I'm suppose to be the most powerful man in the world and I... I'm impotent. Well, I'll tell you what, this is the last time anyone's gonna make a decision like that for me.

Toeing the party line
21 November 2013 | by richcomerfordSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the film, mainly for 2 brilliant portrayals - Rob Lowe as JFK and Will Rothhaar as LHO. Otherwise,no more than an attempt to bolster up the Warren Commission and its supporters by treating the "findings" as undisputed fact. No way!! The trouble is, after 50 years, people are more and more likely to accept the party line and the murder of a great man will be put down to a disaffected nobody and Truth and Justice will continue to suffer. For example, an acquaintance of mine (English), aged 50, recently told me he understood JFK had been assassinated at his inauguration! With films like this, soon no-one will know or care about this awful crime. And the perpetrators will continue to get away with murder.
