| An excellent film
I've owned this movie on VHS for some time, and being a Kennedy fanatic, it is one of my all-time favorites. I love Martin Sheen's portrayal of JFK, and Blair Brown's resemblance to Jackie is almost eery. I do wish the writers would have had the courage to actually name Marilyn Monroe and all of JFK's other dalliances; it would have made the film that much more respectable. EG Marshall and Geraldine Fitzgerald's appearances as Joe and Rose Kennedy were right on the money.

I would have liked to see a different actor portray MLK. The guy they had didn't really look like him at all--he was too tall and his face didn't have that pudgier look that we all remember.

Finally, the assassination scene, while obviously needed, was poorly constructed. It was obvious to anyone who lived through that day or is an conspiracy buff that the scene wasn't filmed anywhere near Dallas. For comparison purposes, Oliver Stone's re-creation for "JFK" was much, much better.

Overall, this is an excellent movie, and I would recommend it to anyone seeking more knowledge of the Kennedy administration and family, as well as Kennedy the man.
