Thirteen Days, 2000

Directed by Roger Donaldson
Written by David Self
Starring Bruce Greenwood, Steven Culp, Kevin Costner

This is a fine and inspiring dramatization of the White House view of the events of the Cuban missile crisis. It's important to see how JFK and RFK navigated a path that prevented World War III from erupting -- and that, along with everything else, there were those on both sides who would have preferred that. Aside from not-so-great Boston accents basically throughout the movie, things are very well done here. You might even argue that it's the responsibility of Americans to see this movie, so they can know how hard it is and how much bravery is required to avoid war.
