"My hope with the film is not just capturing my mother in these historical moments, but really give a deeper insight into who she is, what her character is like, what it was like growing up in my family, and what the culture was like." -Rory Kennedy on "Ethel"

"I felt that my mother has had such an extraordinary life, and is really a kind of an extraordinary character that very few people have had access to or been exposed to."
