"Near the end of this disc, a spokeswoman for the Kennedy family says, "Yes, they have been given countless privileges, but there are many people with the same privileges who only ride yachts and do nothing else." This is very on point.
This Lifetime channel works show that Kennedy women have overcome the adversity of death. They truly are a united family. It will be empowering for many viewers to see such accomplished and giving women. This documentary may be inspirational for many young girls. Most of the Kennedy women use hyphenated last names. This will feel feminist to some and elitist/snotty to others.
This documentary was made in 1996. It really needs an update. This does not talk about JFK Jr.'s plane crash nor the recent electoral defeat of one of the interviewed women. It doesn't talk about infamous male relatives: one was accused of rape, another was accused of murder.
Like most documentaries, I wish this one had foreign language subtitles. I am positive that many people who do not speak English would benefit from being able to understand and see this work."
