For 13 extraordinary days in October of 1962, the world stood on the brink of an unthinkable catastrophe. Across the globe, people anxiously awaited the outcome of a harrowing political, diplomatic, and military confrontation that threatened to end in an apocalyptic nuclear exchange between the United States and the Soviet Union. Kevin Costner stars as Kenny O'Donnell, a special assistant to President John F. Kennedy, the Everyman through whose eyes and ears the story plays out. O'Donnell was a key White House insider with a birds'-eye view of the imbroglio. He wielded significant power in the Kennedy White House and serves as a conduit to the gripping dramatization of one of the most dangerous moments in history.
Seating is limited and is first-come, first-serve. The Student Activities Office and UR Cinema Group are sponsoring this screening. Thirteen Days is rated PG-13. For more information please contact (585) 275-5911.
