The movie about President John F. Kennedy based on the book “Letters to Jackie: Condolences From a Grieving Nation” by Ellen Fitzpatrick, professor of history at the University of New Hampshire, will premiere nationwide on TLC at 9 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17.
The film debuts as an exclusive television event on TLC to mark the 50th anniversary of the president’s assassination. The documentary is based on Fitzpatrick’s book, which examines the extraordinary collection of letters sent to First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy following the president’s assassination and creates a moving portrait of the nation’s grief from such a cross-section of American life.
Twenty A-list celebrities have lent their recognizable voices to give life to these letters from everyday Americans, including a polio-stricken 13-year-old who offers words of strength for the first lady, a Peace Corps volunteer who mourns the loss while stationed in Ethiopia and an African American woman who expressed her pride and gratitude for President Kennedy’s work in the civil rights movement.
The participating talent includes Bérénice Bejo, Demián Bichir, Jessica Chastain, Chris Cooper, Viola Davis, Zooey Deschanel, Kirsten Dunst, Anne Hathaway, Allison Janney, John Krasinski, Melissa Leo, Laura Linney, Frances McDormand, Chloë Grace Moretz, Mark Ruffalo, Octavia Spencer, Hailee Steinfeld, Channing Tatum, Betty White, and Michelle Williams.

Co-starring Matthias Schoenaerts, Kirsten Scott Thomas and Sam Riley, the film is an adaptation of Irene Nemirovsky’s novel, chronicling the love affair between Lucille, a young French woman and the German officer assigned to watch her in Nazi-occupied France. Here’s the official synopsis:
The modern day. Over fifty years after Irene Nemirovsky’s death in a concentration camp, her daughter musters the courage to read her lost manuscript, and discovers an incredible story…
France, 1940. In the first days of occupation, beautiful Lucile Angellier is trapped in a stifled existence with her controlling mother-in-law as they both await news of her husband: a prisoner of war. Parisian refugees start to pour into their small town, soon followed by a regiment of German soldiers who take up residence in the villagers’ own homes.
Lucile initially tries to ignore Bruno, the handsome and refined German officer staying with them. But soon, a powerful love draws them together and leads them into the tragedy of war.
The film is being helmed by Saul Dibb (“The Duchess”), and has no release date yet, but The Weinstein Company have the U.S. rights and it expected to be released on second semester of 2014.
