The event that shocked the world and changed the course of American history is now revealed in a new light. From Producer Ridley Scott, based on the best seller by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, comes this illuminating thriller presented here in a never-before-seen extended cut.
Rob Lowe and Ginnifer Goodwin give galvanizing performances as President John F. and Jacqueline Kennedy in the story about the president’s assassination, and its dramatic aftermath. As global Cold War tensions mount and organized crime escalates in the U.S., a young, ambitious man from a wealthy family rises to become the leader of the free world. At the same time, a former dedicated Marine grows disillusioned with America. When their paths ultimately cross, the course of U.S. history will forever change, as chronicled in this mesmerizing film that also stars Michelle Trachtenberg.
Bonus features: “Camelot 's End: The Making of Killing Kennedy,” “Killing Kennedy: An Interview with Author Bill O'Reilly,” and “The Kennedy Mystique.”
Not available for shipment outside the U.S. and Canada.
This is the best depiction of the assassination I have ever seen. Rob Lowe nailed Kennedy, right down to his walk. Uncanny! I liked the fact that they also showed his flaws. He was not a perfect person. But no one deserves to die that way. This country lost a great one and all of us died a little in November 1963 . Great job NGC. Everyone since then has been all consumed with who shot him and why. They seem to have forgotten his two fatherless children and widow. I highly reccomend this to anyone who wants to see an accurate account of how it all happened. You won't be disappointed.
