Editorial Reviews

Jill Hennessy, Lauren Holly, Leslie Stefanson. Jackie, Ethel and Joan were more than Mrs. Kennedys-these Washington wives were part of an American dream so promising it forced them to uphold their public image and hide their private truths. 2001/color/168 min/NR/fullscreen.

Customer Reviews

They must of worked hard to get it sooooo OTT.
Lee Wilmott
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.
Nicholas A. Pelino
I thought Jill Hennesey was very good as Jackie and the role of Joan was very well played, very believable.

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.

The screenplay to this production was written by someone wishing to portray the Kennedy women as strong & independent in their own rights. Given the recent releases of some of her old interviews in which Jackie stated that her opinions were pretty much given to her by JFK, and the shock expressed by Caroline's daughters in learning that their grandmother was the antithesis of a liberated woman, it is difficult to make that case with Jackie. Recalling Joan's bouts with alcoholism as a result of her marriage to Ted the words strong & independent do not fit so well. Perhaps Ethel was the exception, but I suspect she was very much the traditional housewife. With Joan, who was not so strong, & Jackie, who was anything but independent, we are being asked to empathize with people who were privileged and wealthy, and somehow relate to their stories. This is hard to do.

Jill Hennsey played wonderul role protraying Jackie Kennedy. It gives the viewer a part in the movie itself as there is good drama, and role acting. I felt part of the film myself. Excellent. The story is well written, and gives the many facts that the public hadn't known during the Kennedy era. I was in 7th grade when Pres. Jack Kennedy was assisin. It was a horrible day that afternoon, that we were dismiss from class early and sent home. The church bells rang out in morning. I will never forget that day. I enjoyed the movie very well. Execept for Marilyln Monroe, the part of her character didnt' look like the real one. But it was a fine job too.

I picked up the book " Jackie Ethel and Joan" at a local bookstore, and was very excited to see they're was a movie about the book. I love reading the book and then watching the movie afterward.

It is a story based on a tragic time in our history. I think a lot of people are fascinated by the Kennedy's. This is a little window into their world.

I was taken aback by the opening scene (November 9, 1960) showing summer foliage? Anyone else catch this rather insignificant detail? Perhaps I need to suspend my disbelief.
