The CONELRAD 100 of Atomic Films

TITLE: THIRTEEN DAYS

A strikingly recreated war council in Thirteen Days.


THIRTEEN DAYS

DIRECTOR: Roger Donaldson
YEAR: 2000

A big budget docudrama of the Cuban Missile crisis of October 1962 told from the perspective of Kennedy aide Kenny O'Donnell (Kevin Costner). Bruce Greenwood and Stephen Culp as JFK and RFK respectively are quite convincing as they struggle to maintain control over the Joint Chiefs while brokering a back channel deal with the Soviets. A previous treatment of this subject was the 1974 TV movie THE MISSILES OF OCTOBER.
