“The best documentary at Sundance...It is a true gift”
- Paste Magazine
"It would have satisfied even the most voracious history buffs if Rory Kennedy, youngest child of Robert and Ethel Kennedy, had enlisted her mother’s perspective simply as a fresh angle on the Kennedy years. But ETHEL is so much more."
- Movie City News
ETHEL is about the remarkable life of Ethel Kennedy, told by those who know Ethel best: her family. Directed by her Emmy® Award-winning daughter, Rory Kennedy, the film features candid interviews with Ethel and seven of her children. The film is a personal portrait of Ethel’s political awakening, the life she shared with Robert F. Kennedy, and the years following his death when she raised their 11 children on her own. Intimate, funny, and deeply moving, ETHEL offers a rare look inside a political dynasty strengthened by family bonds, a compassion for others, and a wisdom forged from both hardship and triumph.

More About International Tennis Hall of Fame
Located in the original rooms of the Newport Casino, The International Tennis Hall of Fame Museum houses memorabilia that highlights the best of tennis, both past and present.
The collection dates back to the 12th century and includes the trophies and attire of the sport's biggest stars, vintage equipment, video highlights and more. Most recently the museum took in the attire of Nicolas Mahut, fresh off his performance in the longest-running tennis game in Wimbledon history.
The facilities are recognized as a National Historic Landmark.
The grounds surrounding the museum are also world-renowned. Thirteen grass-manicured courts are on the premises, surrounded by placards that detail the site's history. Also on site is the National Tennis Club, which features the unique game of court tennis.
