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 »

Goofs

(at around 44 mins) When Lee asks Marina to photograph him with the rifle there are TV cable boxes on the wall beneath the stairs above the trash can, with numerous cables routed in and out of the present-day plastic service boxes. 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.

The Warren Report made into film
10 November 2013 | by hromanzSee all my reviews

What a shame Rob Lowe's great portrayal of President Kennedy is wasted on such a sellout production of the notoriously inaccurate Warren Commission Report. Little if any makes sense in this story, but the real clincher is Jack Ruby's absurd scene of the teary eyed mobster all broken up for Jackie Kennedy's ordeal! Come on, give us a break! I think Lowe's portrayal is the best there's ever been, he really looks the part, but it will be forgotten in the movie's general feel of mainstream official story. Blah! Ginnifer Goodwin is also very good as Jacqueline Kennedy and she comes across as loving and dedicated as the real one must have been. Kudos also for Bobby and Ken O'Donnell. I don't think this one contains any spoilers, I mean we all know the story and how it ends, but what a waste of (prime)time!
