In the Sundance Film Festival favorite, Ethel, Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Rory Kennedy examines the remarkable life of her mother, Ethel Kennedy. The documentary features candid interviews with Ethel and seven of her children and is a surprisingly personal portrait of Ethel’s political awakening, the life she shared with Robert F. Kennedy, and the years following his death when she raised their eleven children on her own. Documentarian, Rory, is the youngest of the siblings and was born shortly after her father’s death. The film is packed with incredible archival footage, including family home movies, and provides unique and personal, never before revealed insight into many historical events. Intimate, funny, and deeply moving, Ethel offers a rare look inside a political dynasty strengthened by family bonds, a compassion for others, and a wisdom forged from both hardship and triumph.
