Taking On the Kennedys

Taking On the Kennedys



Joshua Seftel's documentary Taking on the Kennedys documents the fierce political campaign waged for a seat in the United States House of Representatives waged between Patrick Kennedy and political neophyte Kevin Vigilante. The film shows how Vigilante, who began the campaign as a huge underdog, begins to turn the polls in his favor when he decides to run a campaign that makes him ethically uncomfortable.
