Entertaining
I have seen this Mini at least three times and have been impressed with its ambition. It attempts to cover almost the entire marriage of Rose and Joe Kennedy and does so with minimal confusion and clutter. While I had some trouble the first night following the action the rest seemed to be cohesive and entertaining.

William Peterson and Annette O'Toole are outstanding as Joe and Rose. Peterson's performance gives Joe Kennedy an evil undertone that is almost too hard to deal with. You lose respect for him as time goes on, particularly when it comes to the way in which he treats the women.

Charles Durning is fabulous as Rose's father "Honey Fitz", and there are also some interesting performances among the younger members of the cast, particularly Tracey Polan as Kick and Campbell Scott as Joe, Jr.
