10th Annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series: JFK: The Last Speech
2019-2020 Winter Films
Directed by Bestor Cram. Executive Producer Neil Bicknell and his wife Judy will attend the film.
Of President John F. Kennedy, many stories have been told. Few are less known or more revealing than the story of his friendship with Robert Frost, America’s most celebrated poet. Yet it was Robert Frost that Kennedy made the subject of one of his most famous speeches, delivered just weeks before his assassination. JFK: The Last Speech explores the relationship between these two Americans, one that reached its tragic climax after an encounter between Frost and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev at the height of the Cold War. At the film’s center is an extraordinary speech about poetry and power that inspired a group of college classmates to alter the course of their lives.
