Thirteen Days

139 minutes 2000 7.3

For thirteen extraordinary days in October 1962, the world stood on the brink of an unimaginable catastrophe. All over the world, people anxiously awaited the outcome of a harrowing political, diplomatic and military confrontation that threatened to end in an apocalyptic nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union. In Thirteen Days, the power and danger of the American president is dramatically conveyed by director Roger Donaldson, who captures the situation, the tension and the paralyzing chaos created by the Cuban Missile Crisis. The alarming escalation of events during those fateful days really put President John F. Kennedy and his brother Bobby in the spotlight, and it is through the eyes of a trusted presidential aide and confidant, Kenneth P. O'Donnel, that the story unfolds.
