"Thirteen Days" is a 2000 historical film directed by Roger Donaldson about the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, seen from the perspective of the US political leadership.

Most of the scenes take place in the White House, focusing on the decision-making process as President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert confront the military, who are pushing for an invasion of Cuba as a reaction to the installation of missiles there by the Soviet Union. Most of the film deals not so much with the Cold War between the Superpowers so much as the conflict between the civilian and military authorities over the correct strategy to pursue. The film is structured so that much of it is seen through the eyes of special White House counsel Kenny O'Donnell, played by Kevin Costner.

While the movie carries the same name as the book "Thirteen Days" by Robert F. Kennedy, it is actually based on "The Kennedy Tapes - Inside the White House During the Cuban Missile Crisis" by Ernest May and Philip Zelikow.

Distribution

New Line Cinema was one of the production companies, alongside Kevin Costner's company Tig Productions and Armyan Bernstein's Beacon Communications. The film was given a limited release in late December 2000, but wide release did not occur until January 2001, with a staggered release to various countries throughout most of the year.
