"A saga of ambition, wealth, family loyalty and personal tragedy unlike any other"

The telling of America's best know family. A examination of the various political and personal achievements, the film will be written by Academy Award winners Oliver Stone & Paul Haggis will be joined by newcomer Corey Wackel.

What the Press Would Say:

An all-star cast brings the story of the most fascinating family in this country's history to the screen with searing power. Most of the actors were gutsy enough to have many hours of make-up in order to bring their character to the screen. Jack Nicholson & Meryl Streep are perfect as the backbone of the Kennedy family. The film's supporting cast is pitch perfect, with Kevin Costner finally showing us his great talents. First time screenwriter-director Corey Wackel nails the difficult material.
