Biography focusing on the former first lady's years in D.C., from working as a newspaper's "Inquiring Camera Girl" to meeting and being courted by Rep. Jack Kennedy to life on the campaign trail and into the White House.
In this half hour version of the FOX top rated show Ally McBeal, David E. Kelley adds un-aired scenes of the original show. Plus, he cut all the court stories, making the show about Ally's personal stories only.

It may sound like a fairy tale, being born as son of the murdered JFK, the most 'regal' US President ever, but for John 'John-John' Kennedy, it's a burden. When he becomes an Assistant D.A., the press is all over him, flunking one exam gets smeared all over the national press, wherever he goes people point at him, recognizing face and/or name, but hardly notice what he actually does. His mediatic mother Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis pushes him, stifles him, forbids him to become an actor or won't hear of him dating an actress, then dies herself. Finally the legendary Kennedy curse, which never skipped a generation, chooses him to be the victim of an airplane accident... Written by
I'm surprised at the positive reviews of this film, I thought it was awful! Very poor production values and bad voice dubbing (is it just me, or does anyone else think Jacqueline Bisset was re-voiced by a different actor?).
The poor actors did their best with the mediocrematerial - Portia de Rossi was good as always, but I found the style of the film very melodramatic, it was a bit like watching a daytime soap. John Jnr came across as a spoilt, angry, unlikeable young man. This was obviously shot on video, and the lighting was terrible. Could have been (and should have been!) so much better.
