Based in part on Robert F. Kennedy's book, "Thirteen Days," this tele-film profiles the Kennedy Administration's actions during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Without becoming didactic, The Missiles of October does an outstanding job of presenting many points of view on the Cuban missile crisis. The film humanizes Kennedy's near impossible task of avoiding war without compromising national security.
As events play out The Missiles of October becomes completely gripping. Actual news footage is spliced in with the action, nicely serving as exposition and driving home just how very close the world came to nuclear war. A crew of excellent character actors flesh out the story and reveal the psychological games behind the language of diplomacy.
One of the first attempts at the docudrama format on American television, The Missiles of October was hailed as a milestone and its success has never been repeated.
