A very personal portrait, the film uses previously unseen video footage as well as up-to-the-minute interviews with friends and family to tell the story of ETHEL’S political awakening, life with and after the assassination of husband ROBERT KENNEDY and the ever changing ups-and-downs of raising 11 kids. Facing entertainment reporters at the Television Critics Association press conference to discuss the project, filmmaker KENNEDY was candid in discussing how her long association with HBO honcho SHEILA NEVINS and the HBO brand were the deciding factors in getting this film made.
