Drama documentary based on Bill O'Reilly's and Martin Dugard's 2012 non-fiction book "Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot". It follows the parallel lives of John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald from the winter 1959-1960 to those fatal days in Dallas in November 1963, when they both died within two days after each other and were buried on the same day - John F. Kennedy in a state funeral in Washington D.C., broadcast live both to Europe and the Pacific, while Oswald was buried in Forth Worth at a small funeral where the attending reporters were asked to act as pallbearers.

This movie has a serious casting problem. Will Rothhaar isn't nearly as engaging as Oswald, and can't act to save his own life. It lacks experience, and his performance is unidimentional, at best. The rest of the cast is great, but Rothhaar weights down the play, making Oswald sound like a spoiled whinning brat, instead of a troubled, deeply conflicted person.

This film is more about Lee Harvey Oswald, he man who supposedly killed John F. Kennedy, than a film about John F. Kennedy's death. Kennedy is totally maintained a part during most part of the film and Oswald's perpective of the events is taken forward.

I would have liked to see more of Kennedy but it was also interesting to see more depth about Oswald's life. I also liked to have seen some other aspects be more clarified.
This drama/documentary was not what I was expecting but I always find interesting to know more about those conspiracies about Kennedy's death.

In two days, 50 years have passed since John F. Kennedy was assassinated, on 22nd November 1963 and until today no one can tell what really happened.
