We’ve seen films tackle the story of John F. Kennedy from nearly every angle —
JFK with Kevin Coster saw a DA investigating the assassination, Parkland with Zac Efron depicted what went down with the doctors trying to save the President’s life, even X-Men: Days of Future Past fictionalized his death with mutants. Now we shall see what Jacqueline Kennedy was up to following the tragic event. Natalie Portman portrays the renowned First Lady in Jackie, and we have a first look at her performance.

“Are there any good films that depict the Kennedys?”
These two are some of the best.
If you want drama, sex, scandal, Hollywood style, etc:
If you want accurate history:
PBS American Experience: JFK Like No Other
They are sporadically available on Netflix, You Tube, PBS.
JD and James – agree with both of you.
I’ve never really enjoyed Hollywood movies trying to portray the Kennedys. I can’t put my finger on it as to why, though.
Also – and not to nitpick here – but whoever is running this website, can you please make external links open in a new tab or window in the browser? It’s very annoying to click on a link and it opens in the same window.
Maybe you don’t like the negative slant they always put on the kennedys to appease the CIA paymasters
Are there any good films that depict the Kennedys? Stone’s JFK is great, but of course doesn’t really depict JFK himself to any significant extent. Robert Drew’s documentaries are excellent, too.
It’s been a while but The Missiles of October and Thirteen Days, both about the Cuban Missile Crisis, were pretty good if I remember right.
I forgot to provide the link for descriptions and reviews.
I don’t think either one of them really addressed the intensity JFK was under from the Military to invade, or from Air Force Commander Curtis LeMay to nuke Cuba. They probably don’t repeat LeMay’s comment about the Naval blockade being worse than the appeasement at Munich.
I did not realize you can watch The Missiles of October for free now on you tube.
That’s an interesting question. For some reason, it seems impossible to suspend disbelief that one is watching an acting performance when the actor is portraying a Kennedy.
