Thirteen Days Movie Description

In Thirteen Days Movie 1962, the world stood on the brink of World War III for the 2000 film Thirteen Days Film, starring Kevin Costner, Bruce Greenwood, Steven Culp and Dylan Baker, directed by Roger Donaldson. 

In Thirteen Days Movie, The story deals with the "Cuban Missile Crisis", when the US discovered that the Soviet Union had placed US missiles in Cuba. Missiles were placed for the purpose of

As someone who remembers the situation well, watching it was a profound experience in more ways than one. 

Much of the dialogue was taken from actual presidential transcripts, which made it even more impactful. Looking at it from today's perspective, "Thirteen Days Movie" is a knockout.

Donaldson focuses the Thirteen Days film where it needs to be - in the White House and in the conference room, giving us only the subplot of Kenny O'Donnell's family life. To the posters who commented that O'Donnell probably wasn't a real person, yes, they were. 

It's impossible for me to believe that with a Thirteen Days movie that goes into so much detail and tries so hard to be factual, anyone thought that was a made-up character. Try Google next time. 

Ken O'Donnell led Kennedy's presidential campaign and was appointed his special assistant when Kennedy won the White House. He was the most powerful of the President's advisors.

Several things became clear about the events going on in the White House in 1962: none of the military leaders thought that the Kennedy administration was in the White House; Had it been up to the military leaders, the situation would have led to World War III; JFK turned himself into a pretzel in order to pursue a diplomatic solution to the potential conflict. 

Though discouraged at almost every turn, JFK still would not allow the shooting to begin, instead imposing an embargo against Cuba.

There is a lot of tension and excitement in this Thirteen Days film. One of the best scenes is Commander Eckard (Christopher Lawford) and his team flying low over Cuba taking pictures, and a U-2 pilot trying to dodge the missiles chasing him. 

But most of the tension and excitement occurs in the meetings as the chairman and RFK struggle for answers and play for time. 

The mix is ​​therefore ideal: drama, some aerial excitement, and a little humor as Adlai Stevenson gets the better of the Russians at the OAS meeting.

One look at the country's reaction too - very accurate too. Yes, people piled into church, cleared grocery shelves of everything, and stocked fallout shelters. We all saw the President on television. 

In fact, while he was talking, my mother thought he was about to declare war. It was a terrible time.

Kenny O'Donnell's role in all of this may have been somewhat exaggerated to make it an appealing role for Kevin Costner. Costner is okay in the part. The Boston accent is very difficult to do without the sound in them. 

It's very difficult to cast accents in general and make them look organic to the character. Some have been successful: Anne Bancroft in "The Miracle Worker", Paul Newman in "Somebody Up There Likes Me", little Natalie Wood in "Tomorrow is Forever", Travolta in "Saturday Night Fever" and of course others. 

Jane Seymour and Joan Collins can easily pretend to be American. All British actors can do a Southern accent, because the Southern accent started out as a British accent. Costner lays it on too thick and it's a distraction. But he certainly isn't bad in the role.

The casting guys only wanted to suggest JFK and RFK. In Steven Culp, they found a young actor with characteristics similar to RFK. He does an effective job considering it's hard to portray someone so famous. 

Most successful in the Thirteen Days film is Bruce Greenwood as JFK, who tries to keep the dialogue from overpowering. 

In the President's televised speech, I'm sure he mimicked every single turn and pause of JFK, and it's perfect. 

His JFK is a listener, heavily reliant on his brother's advice, and one who carries the nation's burden like a cross on his shoulders. One of the posters here mentions something to the effect that "we are led to believe that JFK is heavily dependent on his advisors" as if this is a negative. 

Of course he did. Of course any president does or should. The final decisions were his, and he had to be sure of all the implications. Only an idiot doesn't listen to every single opinion of value before deciding to start World War III.

The camaraderie between RFK, JFK, and O'Donnell is as unmistakable as their arguments and frustrations.

Thirteen months after the Cuban Missile Crisis, JFK would die and O'Donnell would ride behind him in a Secret Service car. 

After a particularly difficult meeting with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, O'Donnell insists that JFK sit down for a minute, and JFK finally does. 

Exhausted and unable to sleep well, he regrets being president. "I just thought there would be better days." In the end, we - and he - would have just settled down for more days.

The 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis is seen through the eyes of presidential assistant Kenny O'Donnell (Kevin Costner who nails the role perfectly), as a trusted confidante and Robert Kennedy (Steven Culp who bears a remarkable resemblance to ) and of course President John F. 

Kennedy (a solid Bruce Greenwood). This intriguing Thirteen Days film comprehensively develops the Cuban Missile Crisis which was a confrontation between the Soviet Union, Cuba and the United States in October 1962 during the Cold War. 

The picture is full of mystery, drama, historical action and is quite entertaining. It is based correctly on the facts and in the sense of dramatic license some sacrifices of accuracy are realized. 

The motion picture is very well directed by Roger Donaldson, who previously worked with Costner in another mystery film titled ¨No Way Out (87)¨ with a lot of political intrigue.

Adding more detail to scenes widely depicted in the Thirteen Days film, events took place in the following way: In September 1962, the Cuban and Soviet governments deployed several medium and medium-range ballistic nuclear missiles (MRBMs and IRBMs) in Cuba and most of the continental United States. 

With the capability to attack America. This action was followed by the deployment of the Thor IRBM in Britain in 1958 and the Jupiter IRBM in Italy and Turkey in 1961; More than 100 US-made missiles with the capability to strike Moscow with nuclear weapons. 

On October 14, 1962, a United States U-2 photo-reconnaissance aircraft took photographic evidence of Soviet missile bases under construction in Cuba. The ensuing crisis ranks, along with the Berlin Blockade, as one of the major confrontations of the Cold War and is generally regarded as such. 

as the moment when the Cold War came close to turning into a nuclear conflict. The US President (Bruce Greenwood), Attorney General Robert Kennedy (Steven Culp), Secretary of State Robert McNamara (Dylan Baker) and his military staff (Bill Smitrovich, Ed Lauter, James Karen, Len Carreau) and General Curtis LeMay (Kevin Conway) Considered invading Cuba via air and sea and settled on a "quarantine" of Cuba. 

The US announced that it would not allow offensive weapons to be delivered to Cuba and demanded that the Soviet Union destroy missile bases already under construction or completed in Cuba and remove all offensive weapons. 

The Kennedy administration had a slim hope that the Kremlin would agree to their demands, and expected a military confrontation. 

On the Soviet end, Nikita Khrushchev wrote to Kennedy that "navigation in international waters and air space is an act of aggression propelling mankind into the abyss of a world nuclear-missile war." 

Fidel Castro sent Khrushchev to the U.S. to launch a pre-emptive first-strike nuclear attack on The Soviets publicly accused the U.S. The demands escalated, but secret back-channel communications triggered a resolution to resolve the crisis. 

The confrontation ended on October 28, 1962 when President John F. Kennedy and UN Secretary-General U Thant reached an agreement with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to destroy the offensive weapons and return them to the Soviet Union, subject to UN verification. 

in exchange for an agreement by the United States never to invade Cuba. The Soviets removed the missile systems and their support equipment, loading them onto eight Soviet ships from 5–9 November. 

A month later, on 5 and 6 December, Soviet IL-28 bombers were loaded onto three Soviet ships and sent back to Russia. The quarantine formally ended earlier on November 20, 1962. 

As a secret part of the agreement, all US-built Thor and Jupiter IRBMs stationed in Europe were decommissioned by September 1963. 

The Cuban Missile Crisis prompted the creation of the Hotline Agreement and the Moscow–Washington Hot Line, a direct communication link between Moscow and Washington.
