Storyline

This sweeping mini-series profiling the Kennedy family ran three nights. The film chronicles 55 years in the lives of the family opening in 1906 with the marriage of Joseph P. Kennedy, a Harvard graduate, to Rose Fitzgerald, the daughter of Boston's Mayor. The first night focuses on the marriage's troubled years and Rose's strength in developing a real family. The second night covered the years of 1928 - 1940 and Jospeh's years as working as a movie producer and then an ambassador. The final night follows the Kennedy's tragedies during World War II and follows the post war years political successes of John Kennedy. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Entertaining
8 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

I have seen this Mini at least three times and have been impressed with its ambition. It attempts to cover almost the entire marriage of Rose and Joe Kennedy and does so with minimal confusion and clutter. While I had some trouble the first night following the action the rest seemed to be cohesive and entertaining.

William Peterson and Annette O'Toole are outstanding as Joe and Rose. Peterson's performance gives Joe Kennedy an evil undertone that is almost too hard to deal with. You lose respect for him as time goes on, particularly when it comes to the way in which he treats the women.

Charles Durning is fabulous as Rose's father "Honey Fitz", and there are also some interesting performances among the younger members of the cast, particularly Tracey Polan as Kick and Campbell Scott as Joe, Jr.
