anything Gretchen Mol is in I will watch. I had no expectations on this film and it started kind of slow. Then it picked up and the story really set in, if you were 13 yo in 1963 as I was and in Catholic School on the East Coast this film hits home. Sorry to say I knew no one thi likes of Gretchen. Good film "Baby Boomers" will love it.
I have seldom seen a movie as intense as this one, The way it plays on history and teasingly intimates one of the conspiracy theories of the JFK assasination is top drawer. This is a 5* must see movie for anyone that likes drama.
