What those Kennedy women endured

"Covering much of the same territory as other biopics on the Kennedys, THE WOMEN OF CAMELOT goes more in depth on the three,Jackie,Ethel and Joan who were married to Jack,Bobby and Teddy respectively.Though this 3 hour series hits all of the well known "hot spots" that occurred during the years 1953-1979, what this series does best is to keep the focus squarely on the women and their dealings with each other,their trusts and mistrusts with the Kennedy clan and their needs ,wants and desires that individually fueled them while being married to the most powerful family in America.The casting is outstanding. All three actresses have done a marvelous job at capturing the ladies language,look and movement.This film breezes through material quickly, but not in a way that characters are left undeveloped. History is not sacrificed and neither is character enrichment.Well done and worth the bargain price you pay."

"A most fascinating look a the Kennedy empire from the wives point of view. Based on the book by J. Randy Taraborrelli Jackie, Ethel, Joan - Involving extensive research, including interviews with those closest to the Kennedy family, oral histories from the JFK libraries and revealing personal letters and tapes. The DVD is 3 hours in length. Stereo surround and picture quality are excellent. Cinematagrophy is completely mesmerizing, with every scene similar to a historic color photograph. From the viewers point of view, the film creates a secret glimpse into the three women's lives. Outstandingly cast."

"I have always been fascinated by the Kennedy women, this biopic is perhaps the most dignified and relevant works on the lives of the wives of the Kennedy brothers. Particularly well done is the portrayal of Joan. The careful balance given by Leslie Stephanson is masterful and beautifully paced and insightful. Lauren Holly's brash and lovable Ethel makes Robert's devotion understandable. Finally we are given a Jackie through Jill Hennessy that is not just a collage of mannerisms based on television clips! Thom Christopher's tight writing is not a sentimental journey but an enchanting examination of extraordinary women placed in extraordinary circumstances by virtue of their exoteric partners."

"Just as I enjoyed the book by Randy Taraborrelli - I enjoyed this movie. Jill Hennessry is very believable as Jackie Kennedy and when the President dies - her scenes will break your heart and take you right back to that dreadful moment in time. Lauren Holly is excellent as Ethel and fun to watch - Leslie Stefanson is surprisingly effective as Joan Kennedy,
you can find yourself cheering for her and that surprised me. This movie is about these three remarkable women and that theme is carried out from the beginning to the end of the film. I have watched this movie several times since I purchased it and enjoyed it each time. If you are interested in the "Kennedys" - you will like this DVD."
