An American Affair is an independent film starring Gretchen Mol, James Rebhorn, Noah Wyle, Perrey Reeves, Mark Pellegrino, and Cameron Bright, which was released theatrically by Screen Media Films on February 27, 2009.[2]

The film was produced in 2008, written by Alex Metcalf, directed by William Olsson and produced by Kevin Leydon. Its soundtrack was created by Dustin O'Halloran.


Set in 1963, in the swirl of glamor and intrigue that turned President John F. Kennedy's Washington into Camelot, a young teenager, Adam Stafford (Cameron Bright) has an inside view of JFK’s torrid affair with his neighbor Catherine (Gretchen Mol) and secret CIA assassination plans.

The Catherine Caswell character and the events not involving the wholly fictional Adam Stafford are based on Mary Pinchot Meyer.[3]
