  • Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Ethel

    Rory Kennedy explores the life of her mother, Ethel Kennedy, wife of Robert Kennedy, in this warm and intimate appreciation of a strong woman whose life has been marked by trial and heartache. However, Kennedy finds a sense of dignity and hope in this woman who has lived in the shadow of history her entire life. Essentially an extended family album, it works as a fascinating behind the scenes look at American royalty
