Kevin Vigilante in Taking on the Kennedys

Taking on the Kennedys

1996 NR

In 1994, Kevin Vigilante, a Rhode Island-based doctor who had never held public office, challenged Democratic favorite son Patrick Kennedy for a U.S. House seat. And here's the beauty: He almost won! Documentarian Joshua Seftel uses his unrestricted access to the candidates as they plot strategies, court voters, attend fundraisers and vie for media attention. Features appearances by Caroline Kennedy, Sen. Ted Kennedy, John Kennedy Jr. and others.
