This three-part television miniseries looks inside nearly six decades of the Kennedy lineage. In 1906, Rose (Annette O'Toole) and Joseph Kennedy (William Petersen) marry, then raise a large family and manage to prosper through the Great Depression, even though Joseph is chronically unfaithful and has questionable business ethics. But despite Joe Jr's (Campbell Scott) war heroism and son John's (Steven Weber) eventual rise to the U.S. presidency, tragedy seems to seek the family out.
This made-for-TV adaptation of Arthur Miller's revered stage drama focuses on Willy Loman (Dustin Hoffman), an aging traveling salesman in the midst of a major crisis. Burdened by financial woes and distanced from his wife, Linda (Kate Reid), and two grown sons, Biff (John Malkovich) and Happy (Stephen Lang), the increasingly unstable Willy dwells on various memories of his family and his career as he looks back to find out what went wrong with his life.
