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. This 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 infant son and his chronic womanizing, scrutinized by the FBI under the leadership of the sinister and obsessive J. Edgar Hoover.
Martin Sheen stars as John F. Kennedy, with John Shea as Bobby Kennedy and E.G. Marshall as the family patriarch, Joe Kennedy.
