They were more than Washington wives. They were part of an American dream known as Camelot. With strength and cunning they upheld their public image by concealing their private truths. Jackie, Ethel and Joan had little choice. They were Kennedy women. What really unfolded behind the monolith of Kennedy power is revealed for the first time: the true story of the Kennedy reign told through the eyes of the three women who lived it.

Goofs

About 10 minutes into Part I, there is a scene set at Hyannis Port when JFK takes Jackie to "the Cape" to meet his parents. Although this is supposed to take place in 1953, there is a 1959 Cadillac parked in front of the beach house. See more »

Quotes

Robert F. Kennedy: He'll never have me as Vice President. If he had to choose between me or Ho Chi Mihn as his running mate, he'd choose Ho Chi Mihn.

Badly Miscast
19 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I tried to watch this last night as I had read the book.

I don't care for Jill Hennessy but decided to give it a chance.

She just doesn't have the looks or class of a Jackie Kennedy.

I would rather have seen Jennifer Love Hewitt in the part.

The actress that played Marilyn Monroe was unattractive and was nothing like Marilyn and was insulting to her fans.

I couldn't finish the film and I don't like to do that...but it was really bad.

The scene where they showed JFK in hospital on the slab was long and drawn out and not needed.

It was one of the worst book to film adaptions I have ever seen.
