HBO’s ‘ETHEL’ Gets Personal With The Matriarch Of The Kennedy Dynasty

STUDIO CITY ( — Emmy® Award-winning filmmaker Rory Kennedy, daughter of Robert and Ethel Kennedy, stopped by the KCAL9 studios Thursday to talk about her new HBO documentary.

ETHEL celebrates the remarkable life of the Kennedy matriarch, highlighted by revealing, little-known anecdotes from those who know her best: her family.

The documentary debuted on HBO on Oct. 18, but can be seen again on Oct. 27 at 9:45 a.m. and again on Oct. 29 at 3:15 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. It will also air on HBO2 on Oct. 31 at 8 p.m.

This personal portrait, featuring candid interviews with Ethel – her first extended interview in more than two decades – and her children Kathleen, Joe, Bobby, Courtney, Kerry, Chris and Max, spans her political awakening, the life she shared with Robert Kennedy and the years following his death, when she raised their 11 children. ETHEL is the first film made about the Kennedys from within the family.
