Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

If you're a devotee of schlocky, adoring historical bio-dramas, then you'll love this, with Rob Lowe giving his all as President Jack Kennedy. It's a great impersonation, right down to JFK's Boston drawl. Killing Kennedy (exec produced by Ridley Scott) canters through JFK's presidency while running a parallel story on assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, who's portrayed as a pesky attention-seeker. A limpid Ginnifer Goodwin plays Jackie Kennedy as the woman history has now decided she was: a sainted drip in a pastel cardigan.
