An American Affair Reviews:

To me this movie is essentially your average made-for-TV production that isn't really memorable in one method or another. I'm not going to go into the acting, direction or overall plausibility of the story as another reviewers have except to tell that this film is basically a saying of the true life relationship between President John F. Kennedy and a Washington socialite called Mary Pinchot Meyer.Meyer had been introduced to Kennedy some years back through different acquaintances, namely Ben Bradlee of the Washington Post fame who at that time was a reporter for Newsweek magazine and Bradlee was in fact married to Mary's sister, Tony. Mary Meyer had in fact been married to a CIA operative called Cord Meyer who as portrayed in this film was once the idealistic and actually cynical and alcoholic ex-husband still looking for a possibility to reunite with his wife. Mary was also indeed an exceptionally pretty girl in her day and was artistic as depicted in this movie by Gretchen Mol's character. The existence of a diary detailing the nature of the relationship with Kennedy was very much true in 1963-1964 for Mary Meyer and upon her death nearly a year after Kennedy was assassinated, CIA operatives were intent on retrieving the diary for the potentially explosive notification it contained not only about the affair but also on Agency operations with a view to the concept that JFK shared secrets with Meyer that may have ultimately resulted in his assassination.The plot of 'An American Affair' does indeed follow this real-life storyline nearly to the letter and the mystery surrounding Mary Meyer's death lingers today for those that believed she knew much more and indeed allow on she knew who might have been responsible for the President's death. That is very much implied in this movie, but I can't support but think this could've been such a nice movie with a better script. It truly has all the ingredients of being a love story, political thriller and mystery wrapped up in one.6 out of 10.


Some of the reviewers here obviously have never heard of, or read a ebook of, historical fiction. This film did not start with "True Story". Hence why expect it to be? Indeed, if a movie about historical happenings was 100% accurate it would be so boring we'd then complain about that. Gretchen Mol did a magnificent job as usual. I first saw her in "Forever Mine". If she gets the right part she everytime delivers. The part of the young boy was also well done. It is hard to give much database without spoiling the plot. It has drama, romance and tragedy. All well done; the components of nice movies. So watch it for yourself. And don't test to create historical comparisons as you do. That's not what this film is about.Most of the terrible reviews here come from those who did not see the typical Hollywood template movie they expected. There are no Quentin Tarantino kind influences here. It's not the typical American kind template that has won the US only 5 Palm D Ors in drama at Cannes in the last 25 years even though we've place out tens of thousands of films! Yes if you expect the usual steamy sex, filthy talk, things blowing up, chase scenes, gun wars and bloody gore-filled murder scenes you will be disappointed. Sadly, there are several American made films worth the time or expense at a cinema these days but this is one of them. You receive to have your cake and eat it too.


These days it's rare to come across a finely crafted movie that plays each hero -- and literally each moment of each stage -- with an uncompromising integrity. Instead of the usual attempt to create a marketable product that pulls the right demographic -- or pushes everyone's buttons -- or simply puts as many of the masses into the seats as possible, writer Alex Metcalf and director William Olsson follow their very resonant characters into the storyline generated quite naturally by these delicately entangled lives. Yes, there are elements of "coming of age", of "cloak and dagger", of "erotic thriller", etc. -- but it isn't really any of those. Like all really outstanding motion pictures, this movie belongs to itself -- is its own category.Setting fictional characters into a piece of well-known history is in itself a major film-making challenge and not without its pitfalls. But there isn't a single false step here as Olsson juggles fact and fiction with seamless precision, managing to hold all the balls in the air. "An American Affair' is a quiet film ... taking its time ... allowing you savor each sweet and sour moment. The melody is minimal -- yet superbly appropriate and authentic to period. Never showy, the thoughtful camera work serves the characters and content very, very well.The performances are uniformly perfect -- with Gretchen Mol turning in a truly memorable tour-de-force portrayal of this complex, conflicted young woman. The erotic scenes are never overplayed -- they're tangible -- real. This is genuine eroticism -- not the showbiz kind. She plays the total girl at all times and yet retains that elusive air ... a lingering mystique. Can we -- can anyone -- really know her? We savor every small revelation that emerges through her many moods -- playful, seductive, cynical, childlike, creative, materialistic, conscientious, free-spirited, controlling, generous, vulnerable, self-serving. Mol plays each resonant note to absolute perfection and it's the key to making this movie so unforgettable.This is the type of film that stays with you long after the lights come up. Difficult to trust it's Olsson's first detail length movie -- and it's made in the English language for North America's convenience! We have a lot to look forward to from this unbelievable fresh addition to the world's motion picture auteurs.
