What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Killing Kennedy is a drama focused on the last few months of the lives of President Kennedy and assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. We see Kennedy's death, both in historical footage and in dramatic reenactments, with blood, screaming onlookers, and devastated family members. Oswald also kills a police officer and attempts to shoot another political figure. We see domestic violence and the aftermath. JFK flirts and cavorts with women, including in one scene in a pool where a woman's appears naked from the back. Expect a bit of strong language and scenes of drinking and minor drunkenness.
