I'm sure younger movie lovers will also enjoy this movie. A pleasant 3 hours viewing. Buy the U S version as
its around an extra hours viewing compared to the European version.
I especially liked Julia Stiles, who's portrayal of a pregnant teenager who is sent away in disgrace is truly heart rendering. It also shows the lost innocence of youth for those sent away to Vietnam and the ones who stayed at home to protest against the war and its shocking aftermath. Jerry O'Connell and Josh Hamilton play this to great effect.
The series is a must see for anyone whether you remember the 60s or not. One thing is for sure no one was ever the same again.

Despite that I was born two decades after the sixties, the illustrations of the emotional uproar at the time was so excellently done that I felt as if I was experiencing it myself. The portrayl of the characters development, as well as the Social Issues of the time, was wonderfully intense.
Many of the sense were so so emotionally rich that I even cried a few times, even when it wasn't a particularly sad scene.
The NBC news clips furthered the feeling of experiencing the important events of the sixties, such as JFKs assasination, yourself. Watching what so many saw back in 1963 evokes a feeling of empathy for everyone who heard the news so long ago.
One main aspect of the sixties was the feeling of hope, and that anyone could make a difference, which was clealy evident in the film. After watching it, I wanted so badly to organize a protest. This film definatley inspires the want to stand up for what you believe in and take action.
For those not very interested with the culture and history of the sixties, chances are that the film still possess something they would enjoy. As an example, the lost, confused, and angry attitude of teenage-hood is also demonstrated.
Overall The Sixties was an amazing film. I strongly reccomend this film. Anyone with brain waves will enjoy it.
First of all, sure, the acting wasn't all that great - what do you expect from a made for television movie? Get over it! You're not gonna see major actors in such a small movie. Be glad you got Julia Stiles and Jerry O'Connell!
Secondly, there seems to be complaint that the movie didn't cover some of the major things of the sixties. This makes sense to me - why cover the things that everyone knows about? Why not include the things that not everyone knows about?
I was born in 1983, and I have always been interested in the sixties, and this movie taught me a lot of things I didn't know. If this movie had covered things like the Beatles and Woodstock just like everything else out there, I would have changed the channel and said forget it.
Also, there were comments that there were too many stereotypes - you had the sorta rebellious daughter who got pregnant, the Vietnam veteran who was haunted by the images he saw while in the field, the guy protesting against the war, etc. But did you honestly think that in three hours they could cover all the types of people who lived in the sixties? I don't think so! It would take three days instead of three hours!
All in all, I'd have to say that this movie wasn't all that bad - so quit your complaining! If you think this movie was such a bad portrayal of the sixties, then I say get out there and make your own movie! For those of you who want to learn more about the sixties and are tired of hearing all about hippies and Woodstock and other typical things from the sixties, buy this movie.
The principal characters are three siblings from a white, suburban family. Jerry O'Connell plays Brian, a patriotic heartthrob, who returns from Nam a disillusioned and angry man. His younger sister Katie (Julia Stiles) does not fare much better, and leaves home for hippiedom after becoming pregnant. His brother Michael is the most normal of the bunch, and fights inequality, while pursuing a confusing love interest (Jordana Brewster).
This movie leaves nothing out. It packs in the war, Woodstock, the equal rights movement, and still manages to create likeable characters. It's not an Oscar contender, but it was fairly well done, and deserves a look for anyone with a curiosity about the 1960's
the condition of this used DVD was perfect.
I loved the story lines and I really think the actors
gave 100% to the roles...
Julia Stiles as Katie Herlihy gave some really heart
felt moments as a young mother.
Jerry O'Connell as Brian Herlihy was amazing
the strength he gave his to Brian blow my mind.
If you love you Rockumentary and you dig
60's music Get this it's worth every cent...
