Killing Kennedy is a 2013 historical drama film based on the book of the same name by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard. The movie chronicles the events leading up to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, as well as the aftermath and investigation that followed. The movie stars Rob Lowe as President Kennedy, Will Rothhaar as Lee Harvey Oswald, and Jack Noseworthy as Robert F. Kennedy. The cast also includes Ginnifer Goodwin as Jackie Kennedy, Michelle Trachtenberg as Marina Oswald, and Richard Flood as Kenny O'Donnell.

The film is structured around two parallel storylines: one following Kennedy in the months leading up to his assassination, and the other following Oswald in the years leading up to the assassination.

On one hand, we see Kennedy's political struggles, including the Bay of Pigs fiasco, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the civil rights movement. We also see his personal struggles, including his infidelities and his medical issues.

On the other hand, we see Oswald's troubled life, including his defection to the Soviet Union, his return to the United States, and his interactions with both pro- and anti-Castro groups. We also see his abusive relationship with his wife and his growing obsession with Kennedy.

As the two storylines converge, we see Oswald plan and carry out the assassination, and we see the immediate aftermath through the eyes of Kennedy's family and closest advisors. The movie stops short of exploring the various conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination, instead focusing on the official investigation and the reactions of those closest to the event.

Overall, Killing Kennedy is a well-acted and tightly-paced drama that offers a compelling look at one of the most significant moments in American history. While it doesn't provide any groundbreaking new insights into the assassination, it does humanize both Kennedy and Oswald, offering a glimpse into the complex political and personal motivations that drove them both.

Killing Kennedy is a 2013 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 32 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.0.
