A ground-breaking miniseries, The Kennedys: After Camelot is an engrossing look at those who carried the Kennedy name – and the expectations of history – following the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy.
Katie Holmes stars as Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Still reeling from the death of her husband, John F. (“Jack”) Kennedy, the nation’s 35th president and all but crushed by the assassination of her beloved brother-in-law Robert F. (“Bobby”) Kennedy, her marriage to Greek billionaire Aristotle Onassis provides safety and security for her and her children. It also outrages the American people. But hers is the story of survival, and she returns to the Kennedys to become the rock of the family. Matthew Perry portrays Senator Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy. Challenged to pick up the mantle of his fallen brothers, he spirals downward into the abyss of alcoholism and infidelity. His relationship with Jackie, stormy and emotionally-charged, becomes the salvation of his life and, in many ways, the validation of hers. They were America’s royals, blessed with great gifts and burdened with great flaws. The Kennedys: After Camelot peels back the veneer of power, fame and wealth, and shows them as they really were: all-too-human after all.
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, Alice (Milla Jovovich) is the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead. Now, she must return to where the nightmare began – The Hive in Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.
Rated R for sequences of violence throughout.
