HBO’s ‘Ethel’ turns loving lens on RFK’s widow
Question of the Day
“We walked in to the dining room and said, `Mummy, we want to get arrested in front of the South African embassy,’” she recalled. “And Mummy, without missing a beat, said, `Great, let’s go down there right now.’ She took us down and we got arrested, and she couldn’t have been prouder.”
Ethel Kennedy’s determination remains unflagging. While reluctant to discuss herself, she launches energetically into detailing efforts by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights to improve conditions for New York farmworkers.
One area that remains off limits in the film is her husband’s Los Angeles shooting by Sirhan Sirhan.
“Talk about something else,” she replies to her daughter’s question on the subject.
During a Q&A with reporters, Ethel Kennedy credited her Catholic faith with helping her “get through everything,” including the loss of her husband five years after President Kennedy was assassinated.
“When we lost Bobby, I would wake up in the morning and think, he’s OK. He’s in heaven, and he’s with Jack, and a lot of my brothers and sisters, and my parents,” she said. “So it made it very easy to get through the day thinking he was OK.”
