Rating: B -- Even with its air-brushing and reticent title subject, Ethel is a watchable, oft-affecting film. Full Review

This intimate, revealing portrait of Robert F. Kennedy's widow, directed by their youngest daughter, is a unique installment in the cultural history of this storied family. Full Review

A Kennedy family album of insight-free affection and nostalgia that lobs long, lofting softballs at its subject.

Description by OLDIES.com:

Ethel celebrates the remarkable life of Ethel Kennedy, the wife of Robert F. Kennedy, through a treasure trove of revealing and little-known anecdotes from those who know her best: her family. Directed by her daughter Rory Kennedy, this personal portrait contains Ethel's first extended interview in more than 20 years. An official selection at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, the documentary highlights the remarkable life of the Kennedy matriarch, and the decades-long love story between Ethel, now 84, and her late husband. Described by one of her daughters as "the most fiercely competitive person I've ever met," Ethel comes across as a force of nature in the film, but also self-effacing and modest. Given the Kennedys' place at the forefront of many events in modern history, the film's narrative sweep is vast: from the McCarthy hearings and the Civil Rights movement, to Vietnam and the anti-war movement, to the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy, and beyond.
