The Kennedys - trailers

Greg Kinnear as JFK

IN his 1,000 days in office, charismatic U.S. President John F. Kennedy left a
powerful legacy that still resonates across the world. In an exclusive four-part movie event, the History Channel takes an unprecedented look at the man who helped shape a nation and the cost it had on his family in The Kennedys.

Beginning with the night of his election, The Kennedys reveals the drama behind one of America’s most beloved dynasties. The all-star cast is led by Academy Award nominee Greg Kinnear, who steps into the shoes of JFK alongside Katie Holmes as Jackie Kennedy.

To their adoring public, they were the perfect family but fought constantly to keep their flaws hidden beneath smiles. Playing a President struggling to control his drug use and infidelity, Kinnear uncovers a side to the President that the public never saw.
