'Thirteen Days' | 2000

Bruce Greenwood played JFK alongside Steven Culp's Robert F. Kennedy in this dramatization of Kennedy's struggle to contain the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. But the film's star was Kevin Costner, who portrayed Kenny O'Donnell, special assistant to the president. O'Donnell's elevated role in the film drew some criticism from historians, although some defended the creative decision. Though not a box office smash, the film was generally well received.
