Plot & Details
Take a closer look at "Camelot" in this release that seeks to explore the Kennedy mystique through rare images, little-seen home movie footage, and interviews with White House staff, photographers, journalists, and biographers. Imbued with youthful energy and blessed with the kind of photogenic good looks that endeared them to millions, the youth culture that followed in the wake of the Kennedys helped usher in a new era of change and hope. In time, though, the nation would learn that all was not well beneath the glossy surface of these picturesque images, and in this release filmmakers attempt to shine an illuminating light on the real-life trials of the family who changed the face of a nation.
