il 16 ottobre 1962 al presidente kennedy furono mostrate le fotografie che facevano sospettare l'installazione di missili russi in territorio cubano puntati contro le citt statunitensi. fu l'inizio della crisi cubana, un episodio dela guerra fredda che trascin il mondo sul baratro di un conflitto nucleare dalle devastanti conseguenze.

In short, this is the best dramatisation in existence of JFK's presidential term. Although it was slammed by some critics for taking liberties with historical fact (namely Kenny O'Donnell filling in for numerous other presidential aids), this film is remarkably accurate and manages to maintain a strong air of suspense. To most people, the Cuban Missle Crisis is nothing but a paragraph in an old history text book but Thirteen Days brings it to life perfectly.
Kevin Costner's Boston accent is a little too strong in some scenes. We all know this, he's so bad at accents it's almost funny (see Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) but that hardly derives from the film as a whole thanks to his excellent co-stars.
Steven Culp is utterly convincing as the slightly awkward Attorney General Robert Kennedy but it is Canadian actor Bruce Greenwood who should have got an Oscar nomination (the film recieved none due to it's lack of box office success). Greenwood nails the mannerisms and actions of JFK flawlessly and shows Kennedy as a man plagued by huge decisions, each of which could be fatal for all concerned (ie everyone).
Thirteen Days is a superbly made film which will impress you whatever you may think about Kevin Costner.
I'm also recommending the soundtrack

The story of the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 when the world came to the brink of nuclear war.

I don't pretend to be an expert on this but as far as I can see there are not too many arguments over the film's veracity, in which case I think we should all, in the words of the Pogues, `raise a glass to JFK`. These days, of course, due to his er peccadilloes (what a lovely word that is) he wouldn't get anywhere near the White House and, indeed, he almost didn't make it in 1960 - the closest Presidential election since 1916 apparently (and there are still doubts over the legitimacy of the result). It could have been Richard Nixon! Do you think he would have stood up to Generals Taylor and Lemay? Or Dean Acheson? I don't think so. But, together with his brother, JFK was determined to give peace every chance and not to be the man to take the decision to plunge the world back to the Stone Age lightly.

This, of course, is pretty scary stuff; what, in many ways, is even scarier is the fact that in those days there was no direct contact between the White House and the Kremlin, they had to rely on telexes which may or may not have been from Khrushchev and the word of men who may or may not have had the ear of Khrushchev. One benefit of this affair was the introduction of the `Hotline'. One is left with the conclusion that it was much more difficult to avoid a war than to start one.

It's a very good film; given it's subject, of course, it's basically a film about blokes sitting in rooms talking a lot. I personally think they should have left that way, racked up the claustrophobia, but the film does try to break out now and then, and none too successfully. The scenes in Cuba and O'Donnell's home life don't really add anything and act more as a distraction.

As a history student and a Kennedy fan this film was a must for me!! I was slightly dubious before watching this as to its historical accuracy but this film is by no means inaccurate. Yes there are a few embellished details but all in all this is almost accurate, The role of O'Donnell has been enhanced but the roles of Jack and Bobby Kennedy have been in no way exaggerated. They really were this important in pretty much saving the world from nuclear war!!
This film is a taut, gripping thriller, which even though most viewers will know the outcome of the crisis, still has you sat on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen and marvelling at how close we actaully came to nuclear war. The performances of the main stars has to be admired as all gave fine performances. Costner was fine as O'Donnell, though his accent was a little annoying. The real stars of the film, despite Costner's top billing, were Greenwood and Culp. Greenwood had quite obviously painstakingly studied tapes of Kennedy as his mannerisms were spot on and Culp as Bobby was completely fantastic. I had to look twice to check it wasnt actually Bobby Kennedy he had the mannerisms, attitude and even the voice off perfectly.
All in all this is a highly enjoyable film about a fascinating time that hasnt been ruined by the embellishments and fantascism of Hollywood! Well worth a look!

Format: DVD
I first saw this at the cinema when released and couldn't wait till it came to DVD. The story is lucid and well presented with the flashing to black and white at poignant parts of the film giving a sense of authentic historical connection. You have to follow the dialogue carefully and in doing so you discover some facts and points about the crisis which have only recently been revealed because of the release of some of JFK's tapes. The film is quite long clocking in at 2hrs and 23 minutes but well worth it as this gives the time to work through all 13 days of the title and tell the story well. The DVD has fantastic extras on it including commentary as you watch the film by historical experts and even those who are played in the film; a documentary on the Cuban Missile Crisis itself and small biopics about the characters involved. A delight for anyone who has even a passing interest in the Cold War era or post WW2 20th century.
