Thirteen Days (2000)


Drama/Suspense/Thriller · 2h 25m · 1/12/2001

You'll Never Believe How Close We Came


These are the thirteen days that shook the world and put the United States and the USSR on the brink of a nuclear apocalypse. This gripping thriller takes you inside the White House to the seats of power, bringing to life how the Kennedy administration dealt with the 1962 Cuban missile crisis. Goaded by his top military advisers to strike an attack on the Soviet missiles placed in Cuba, President John Kennedy knew such airstrikes would begin the end of the world as we know it. Only one year later, JFK would be assassinated, but his level-headed tactics during this time saved the world from the unthinkable. Produced by and starring Kevin Costner and directed by Australia's Roger Donaldson (Cocktail, No Way Out), Thirteen Days delivers "some extraordinary history, a great deal of tension, detail and politics. But above all it is a great cinematic thriller given momentum because it all happened" - Paul Le Petit
