Movie Reviews

Patrick Dempsey's JFK
Johan Peter | Amsterdam | 11/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this DVD in the beginning of this year [2007] and -lucky me- the former incompleteness was already corrected. I watched this miniseries about fifteen years ago and I never forgot the brilliant performance of Patrick Dempsey as the young Jack Kennedy. Since then the two are inseparable in my perception of JFK and I have been quite amazed for a long, long time that Dempsey didn't reach star-status or at least became a sex-symbol. Of course this is history now since the succes of Grey's Anatomy and he acquired both, strangely enough at roughly the same age that JFK became president...

I believe that this production paints also one of the most accurate pictures of the [Joe and Rose] Kennedy household that I have ever seen: a strange blend of conservatism and modernism, freedom and discipline. Probably some of the ingredients that made the future president, his wife and brother such enigmatic and fascinating personalities.

Thumbs up for the wardrobe-department too: the clothing of the individual characters is impeccable and completely in line with the period."
Great film and story of young JFK
Jose A. M. Nolla | San Juan, PR Puerto Rico | 11/24/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Though the casting for JFK was not physically similar, the actor doing the part made up for it with his work on the screen.Picture maintains your interest throughout. Great for history buffs."
Drama Queen "Debbie" | Hubbard, OH USA | 04/14/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very good movie if you are interested in JFK. Would recommend."
