|Martin Sheen (The West Wing, When the Bow Breaks, JFK) stars in the title role in this mini-series which centers on the momentous presidential years and the loves, lives, triumphs and tragedies of one of the most controversial families of this century. |
John F Kennedy was America’s 35th President, its first Roman Catholic President, its richest, the youngest to die in office and, arguably, its most celebrated and beloved. His administration attracted some of the most brilliant young men and women in America and together they recreated the twentieth century version of King Arthur’s court at Camelot. He and his beautiful wife Jackie captured the imagination of people the world over. Kennedy is the behind-the-scenes story of JFK’s dynamic Presidential years, from the night before his election in November 1960 to the afternoon of his assassination on 22nd November 1963. It covers momentous events including the abortive invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs, the turmoil of violent racial conflict, the escalation of America’s involvement in Vietnam and the Missile Crisis. It also explores the private life of the man - the tragic death of his son aged only 39 hours and his chronic womanizing, scrutinized by the FBI under the leadership of the sinister and obsessive J. Edgar Hoover.
Kennedy features an outstanding cast. Martin Sheen stars as John F. Kennedy, John Shea is Bobby Kennedy; EG Marshall stars as the family patriarch, Joe Kennedy.
Editor's NoteFor a thousand days, John (Martin Sheen) and Jackie Kennedy (Blair Brown) lived the greatest adventure and the greatest love story of their time. And then, in one terrible moment, he was gone. This biographical drama showcases these thousand days, including such challenges as the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the escalation of United States involvement in Vietnam. But behind the politics lay two real people, with problems of their own.
