This story is well written although I do not know if his family would be delighted with the portrayal.
Patrick Dempsey's acting is impressive. I have enjoyed him in other movies but I was really impressed with his ability to be so versatile within a character. I had no idea J.F.K. suffered from such poor health as a youth. If Dempsey did not loose a great deal of weight to play the sickly times then the make up and costuming was very convincing!
I enjoyed the movie throughly and hold Dempsey in higher regard as an actor since viewing it.
