A series of beautiful but devastating atomic explosions provides a vision of gorgeous, appalling destruction that hangs ominously over the political drama of THIRTEEN DAYS. It's October 16, 1962 and, it is not just another day at the office for Kenneth O'Donnell (Kevin Costner), the Special Assistant to President John F. Kennedy (Bruce Greenwood). The President has just been handed a series of photographs taken from a U-2 spy plane over Cuba, showing deployed Soviet missile launchers capable of firing medium-range ballistic missiles that could hit most major US cities within minutes. THIRTEEN DAYS is a vivid dramatization of what happened in the Kennedy White House during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Seen through the eyes of O'Donnell, it is a close-up view of President Kennedy and his brother, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy (Steven Culp), as they try to handle a crisis that has many of their closest advisors ready to wage what all feared might have been the ultimate war. The script, by David Self, is based on interviews, CIA documents, and White House tapes. Director Roger Donaldson captures the extraordinary tension in the White House as he brings to life every heart-stopping moment.

"...Eerie, compelling viewing....This riveting thriller will have you talking and thinking long after the lights have gone up..." -- 4 out of 5 stars
Total Film - p.86 - Simon Crook
"...Crisp and involving....Efficient and low-key, THIRTEEN DAYS takes itself seriously enough while maintaining a powerful dramatic momentum..."
Los Angeles Times - p.F1 - Kenneth Turan
"...Intelligent....Steven Culp makes a good Bobby Kennedy, sharp-edged and protective of his brother, and Dylan Baker's resemblance to McNamara is uncanny..."
