JFK Library to screen ‘Letters to Jackie’ Sept. 17


We’re told the new documentary “Letters to Jackie: Remembering President Kennedy” will have its Boston premiere — where else? — at the JFK Library and Museum Sept. 17, and air on TLC in November. The movie, produced and directed by Bill Couturie, who won an Oscar for his documentary “Common Threads: Stories From the Quilt,” features more than a dozen celebrities reading letters sent to the then-first lady in the months after JFK’s November 1963 assassination. Among the readers are Jessica Chastain, Chris Cooper, Viola Davis, Zooey Deschanel, Kirsten Dunst, Anne Hathaway, Allison Janney, John Krasinski, Melissa Leo, Laura Linney, Frances McDormand, Chloe Moretz, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum. Christy Scott Cashman’s Saint Aire Productions is one of the movie’s co-producers, along with Steven Speilberg’s Amblin Television. A limited number of tickets will be available to the public Tuesday at www.jfklibrary
