Tom Wilkinson is an award-winning actor of stage and screen.
From the people that put us in the ground, to the people who dig us back up again.
The Kennedys tells us who they were. The Kennedys, a major new four part series, uses public events as a background to tell the intimate story of this iconic family. It is about epic achievements and private failures, about loyalty and love, resentment and betrayal, about people imbued with great gifts and burdened by great flaws, about success of Biblical proportions and tragedy worthy of the Greeks.
It is a story of family loyalty, of lives built on the deaths of siblings, and of sons bending to the will of their dominant father.
Starring Academy Award nominee Greg Kinnear as JFK, Barry Pepper as Bobby Kennedy, Katie Holmes as Jackie Kennedy and BAFTA and Golden Globe Award winner Tom Wilkinson as Joseph Kennedy Sr.
