Content:

(PaPa, HH, PCPC, APAP, AC, AbAb, C, Ho, LLL, V, SS, NN, AA, DD, MM) Strong mixed pagan worldview with left-oriented humanist elements with political correct elements that cast false negative light on American government and CIA, though some anti-Communist sentiments expressed, plus ultimately negative anti-Christian portrayal of Catholic nun overshadows movie’s positive and neutral Christian content and movie implicitly admonishes homosexual slurs; 25 obscenities (including some “f” words), three strong profanities and two light profanities; violence includes slapping, implied murder, boys get into fight twice at school, and comical fight with paints; depicted self-abuse by 13-year-old boy, references to possible pedophilia such as distraught woman starts kissing 13-year-old boy but stops as she comes to her senses (though the sexual tension between them is palpable during the story), implied fornication between adults, young teenagers French kiss, 13-year-old boy looks at nude PLAYBOY photo, implied adultery with married President, 13-year-old tries to get older woman to make out with him and more and almost succeeds, and 13-year-old secretly spies on naked woman through her bedroom window; shots of upper female nudity and some upper male nudity; alcohol use and 13-year-old drinks whiskey; smoking and some kind of implied drug use that could be LSD; and, lying, young teen steams open neighbor’s mail, and young teen steals personal diary.

Summary:

AN AMERICAN AFFAIR is a low-life political thriller about one of President John F. Kennedy’s mistresses and a young teenager, who unwillingly get involved in a CIA plot to assassinate the President. Aside from its leftist politics falsely implicating the CIA, AN AMERICAN AFFAIR contains foul language, explicit nudity and strong sexual content, including sexual tension between a young teenager and a thirtysomething adulteress.

Review:

AN AMERICAN AFFAIR is a low-life political thriller about one of President John F. Kennedy’s mistresses and a young teenager, who unwillingly get involved in the plot to assassinate the President.

The story opens at 13-year-old Adam Stafford’s Catholic school in 1963, where he gets involved in a melee among some boys. Later, at home, Adam gets out a Playboy and abuses himself. Shortly thereafter, he spies the new neighbor across the street through her bedroom window, where she is lounging naked with some man, who is hidden from view.

Adam (who looks 15) steams open her mail and learns that the woman is Catherine Casswell. She catches him at her door after he replaces her mail. Adam tells her that he’s looking for some work to earn some money, so she hires him to help re-do her garden.

Adam keeps spying on Catherine. He learns one night that she is one of President Kennedy’s mistresses. Also, while secretly following her one day, he sees her meet a mysterious man named Lucian Carver, who works with her ex-husband at the CIA.

Suddenly, Adam finds himself at the center of a CIA plot to assassinate the President.

Of course, evidence now shows that, as Jacqueline Kennedy put it, “a dirty little Communist [Lee Harvey Oswald]” killed her husband. There was no CIA plot to murder Kennedy, no plot by anti-Castro patriots from Cuba, and no mob hit.

Aside from its leftist politics, AN AMERICAN AFFAIR is another in an ever-growing list of artsy movies from Hollywood engaging in simulated pedophilia. At one point, the older woman starts kissing the 13-year-old boy but pulls away when she realizes what she’s doing. This fits in with the movie’s references to PLAYBOY, which started this abhorrent era of sexually abusing children. The mystique of John F. Kennedy and his many extra-marital affairs seem to be part of the PLAYBOY era of the late 1950s and early 1960s that eventually corrupted the media and corrupted America and its youths. Ultimately, this too became part of the left’s attack on the Protestant work ethic, the institution of marriage and family, and the biblical values that made America great. The Neo-Marxist fascists leading the protest movement during the late 60s and early 70s picked up this attack, adopting psychological terms to disarm and demonize their opponents.

In that light, it is interesting to note President Barack Obama’s link to these Marxist radicals, in the form of his intimate relationships with people like the Neo-Marxist terrorist Bill Ayers, Neo-Marxist activist Saul Alinsky and Neo-Marxist black power advocate Jeremiah Wright. Obama’s recently announced social policies are part of this continuing attack on Christian America and its traditional values. Obama and his buddies have destroyed the black churches and racially mixed churches. Now, they are working on destroying Hispanic churches and white churches. Of course, if you express harsh criticism of Obama and his buddies, you probably will be called a racist and a homophobe. Guard your children and grandchildren from these antichrists and their perversion of American ideals!
